After World War I, the vets came home - some of them terribly damaged, with burns, amputations, blindness. Annie's father is a doctor at a veterans' hospital, but her mother - and many others in the town -want nothing to do with them. Teen-aged Annie overcomes her revulsion in order to read to the blind, talk with the maimed and learn more about the war-death of her beloved Uncle Paul. She experiences her first crush - towards one of the patients - and her sorrow when he leaves the hospital to return to his far-away home.

A well-written and touching book for teen-agers.
