Waterstones Says

Ultimately uplifting despite its dark subject matter, The War That Saved My Life focuses on the story of Ada, a sheltered girl abused by her mother for her clubfoot, on the eve of the Second World War. With a firm grasp of memorable characterisation and a gift for emotionally resonant prose, Bradley delivers a highly impressive slice of wartime drama.

The War that Saved My Life is an exceptionally moving story of triumph against all odds set during World War II.

Nine-year-old Ada has never left her one-room apartment. Her mother is too humiliated by Ada’s twisted foot to let her outside. So when her little brother Jamie is shipped out of London to escape the war, Ada doesn’t waste a minute—she sneaks out to join him.

So begins a new adventure for Ada, and for Susan Smith, the woman who is forced to take the two kids in. As Ada teaches herself to ride a pony, learns to read and watches for German spies, she begins to trust Susan—and Susan begins to love Ada and Jamie. But in the end, will their bond be enough to hold them together through wartime? Or will Ada and her brother fall back into the cruel hands of their mother?

This masterful work of historical fiction is a thrilling adventure and a moving tale of family and identity.
