`Ada's transformation from an angry young woman into a confident lady is imaginatively drawn.' * Australian Women's Weekly * `An inimitable, robust, yet lyrically written bildungsroman. Its gentle humour is poignant and heartwarming.' * The Australian * `Heartwarming, realistic and ultimately moving...A brilliant read from start to finish, The War that Saved My Life explores themes of love, loss and hope and shows that sometimes the hardest battles are the ones fought within ourselves.' * Gobblefunked * `Achingly lovely...Nuanced and emotionally acute.' * Wall Street Journal * 'Ada's voice is honest and authentic and true...A novel to curl up with on a rainy day; it took me back to the novels I read and loved as a child.' * Steph Bowe, author of Night Swimming *
