"Daddy said that nobody really wins a war. They only make it look that way."

While World War II--the Big War--rages overseas, war-weary civilians on the home front endure sacrifices as they experience their own conflicts, the Little Wars.

Teenager Milla Jaeger questions the war and the rules that war triggers. She misses her family's life in the Wisconsin countryside before the move to Tralmer's Trailer Camp near Milwaukee. Milla resides with her parents and her kid sister in what their mother has labeled the "six-by-fourteen-foot-cracker-box-on-wheels."

As Milla enters high school, she clings to hope for her loved ones serving their country. If only Daddy could turn the knob on their Motorola radio and switch life back to a time before bombs dropped on Pearl Harbor--before her Japanese-American friend is banned from their favorite hangout and before she frightens her younger sister with her nightmares. If only a twist of a wrist could return her cousins from European battlefields, especially her favorite cousin, Raymie. Milla has not forgotten Raymie's long-ago promise, but her obsession with his survival and an even stronger tie--a long-kept secret--truly link them across two uncertain worlds.

About the Author:

A Wisconsin native, Arlene Eisenbise studied Creative Writing, Freelance Writing, and Literature at the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, the School of the Arts at Rhinelander, and at The Clearing in picturesque Door County. Arlene writes novels that allow her fictional characters to experience historical events for educational and entertainment purposes. Her articles about the arts, travel, and home decor appeared in Wisconsin’s leading newspapers. Her poetry has appeared in three Barney Street editions—VIII, IX, and XII—published by the UW-SP, and with Wisconsin History in Poetry. A short story was featured in WritingRaw, an e-zine. Arlene diverted her desire to play the piano to the challenge of another keyboard—believing it a wise choice—since the piano keyboard features neither cut nor paste. She now resides in sunny Arizona, where she continues to imagine and to write.
