In 1935, Halle’s mom gets Tuberculosis and is sent to a special hospital to recover, but it’s not happening quickly enough for Halle. When Halle also gets sick, she joins her mom at the same facility, but they aren’t allowed to see each other. Between the coughing and the worrying about her mother, she doesn’t need any more trouble–but Halle knows she’s not being told everything and decides to do anything she can to help her mom heal. Evocative historical fiction for ages 8 and up.
