Set in England at the end of World War II, this book tells the story of Ruby and her parents. Ruby has not seen her father for a long time and his return home after the war means some changes in her life which she is not sure about. Days spent exploring old bomb sites with her friends are fun until something goes wrong. Dad's rescue of Ruby sets things right between them. The illustrations contribute to the charm of this book.
