|Plot Summary of Looking At The Moon|
|"In this sequel to “The Sky Is Falling”, guests of war, Norah and Gavin Sykes spend the summer of 1943 at the wealthy Ogilvie family cottage in the Muskokas. Three years after their move to Canada, Norah is finding it difficult to remember her past life in England, and young Gavin seems to remember very little about their parents at all.
The story is complicated by the arrival of a distant Ogilvie cousin, Andrew. He is nineteen and handsome and Norah develops a crush on him. Andrew, however, has his own problems – he doesn't want to fight in the war.
This is the second installment in the “Guest of War” trilogy.
