With more than 200,000 books in print, Dear Canda has fast become the historical fiction series for young girls. Jean Little's latest addition is the diary of a young girl observing her world change as war rages thousands of miles away.

It has been two long years since Eliza's beloved older brother, Hugo, went away to war. Caught up in his enthusiasm, she couldn't understand her parent's less-than enthusiastic reaction.

Dear Canada: Brothers Far From Home

A Child's Perspective of WW I
November 2nd, 2014
It is a look at world war one from a younger sibling's perspective. The author makes it a little more real by mentioning an actual author who lived during the Great War. She shows how families coped with the death of loved ones and the survivors of the war who suffered from various physical and psychological injuries. It brings history to life and touches people in ways history books can never do.
