Summary
Details the adolescent confusion of Hattie Tamblyn, a young Canadian teenager who lives on a farm with her parents and younger brother Johnny during the First World War. Hattie's elder brother, Will, to whom she is very close, is fighting in France. When her father hires a conscientious objector, David Ross, to help work on the farm, she and her brother, Johnny, feel their father has betrayed Will. As a CO, David is a social pariah called a "conchie", and he is generally despised and considered a coward. Over the next few months, Hattie and David develop a chaste romance. Hattie's confusion develops as she finds herself drawn to the conchie, an act which she considers a betrayal of her brother. She questions the nature of courage, itself, something which once seemed such a simple concept
