The Heart of War: Amelia Rees isn’t expecting much out of her 15th summer, which is being spent in Connecticut helping her great-grandmother clean out her house for an estate sale. It’s not until she’s cleaning out the dusty, dimly lit attic that Amelia finds something of interest that helps turn her summer around.

In an old steamer trunk, tucked away in a long forgotten corner, is the story of her grandparents life. Jude and Sadie Rees met on the cusp of the second great war, one of them an American stuck abroad and the other a Welshman ready to die for his country. As Amelia follows their romance through letters, photographs, and trinkets she learns about war, loss, fear, and most of all about how love can survive anything.
