Additional Info

This drama by the author of The Great Gilly Hopkins and Finger Painting in a Murphy Bed focuses on a strange, intense friendship that develops in Nebraska during World War II. Sarah is an independent and determined middle-aged mother who runs a diner in Deliverance and worries about her son, a soldier fighting in Europe. She becomes the Jewish mailman’s only friend in town, partly because she feels that a good relationship with the man who brings notices of war deaths will somehow shield her son from harm. Sarah and Joshua put together complex jigsaw puzzles to pass the time, until Sarah thinks he has betrayed her.
