Lisette Beaucaire is angry when her parents send her away from Paris one September day in 1940 during World War II. And although she knows that with the Nazis occupying the city she'd be safer at her Aunt Josephine's farm in the Dordogne valley, Lisette resents her "exile." She misses her friends and the excitement of being thirteen and starting a new school, and now she has nothing to do but amuse her little cousin Cecile. But Lisette soon finds out that she isn't the only visitor at the farmhouse--her aunt is illegally hiding several Jewish and Gypsy children. Then she encounters a ghostly visitor from another time of historical conflict, who proves to be a brave ally at a crucial moment for the people living in the farmhouse...
