"When Jill Winters is sent to spend the summer of 1942 with her grandmother in Winter Haven, Maine, her biggest worry is for the safety of her mother, who is traveling to Newfoundland by boat. When Jill finds a carrier pigeon with a message in German, she suspects that someone in town might be a German spy. Jill must figure out the mystery before the spy finds out what she knows. Christina Moore gives a diverse range of voices to Jill, her grandmother, and the other characters in the story. The voices are all friendly and open, which makes the mystery of who could be a German spy more intriguing. J.F.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
