January 1948 began a wonderful year for the Lechows. With Father newly returned to Western Germany from a Russian prison camp, they were together again and could enjoy a measure of security and happiness in The Ark, their railroad car home on Rowan Farm. t was a year that held for sixteen-year-old Margret in particular, both joy and sorrow. She found real satisfaction in entering Mrs. Almut's Great Danes in two important shows and in raising several young animals which were her very own. The year brought Margaret new friends as well "e"among them the resourceful young schoolmaster with his plan for rebuilding a bombed out farm, and the American woman, working in Germany with the Friends' Service Committee. As in The Ark, her previous book about the Lechow family, Mrs. Benary mirrors the slow changes of the season, come war or peace, the burgeoning of life in the spring and with it a renewal of hope. Once again she creates real people whose joys and disappointments are universally understood, and above all she leaves her readers a sense of courage and faith all too rare in books today.… (més)

Sequel to The Ark. This one is probably a little more appropriate for older kids, 10+, due to reference to a suicide in the book and more "romance". I definitely enjoyed The Ark more, but this is a good sequel for those who loved The Ark. ( )

The second in the series of a refugee family in Germany shortly after WWII (~1948). They've found a home on a farm where the eldest son helps in the orchard & fields, the oldest daughter is kennel assistant (the farm raises Great Danes) plus all other animals, the mother begins a sewing group to show other refugee women how to makeover old clothes, another daughter stays in school & enjoys drama, and the 2 youngest boys have all kinds of adventures at their new school.
I'm reading this aloud to my son, & he keeps wanting to go visit Rowan Farm.
The author writes interestingly, with a few philosophical musings which could actually be said in our current times. The overall life philosophy of the family seems to be "no one can help us if we don't help ourselves," and it seems to be working well for them. The book does touch on some social problems such as the fate of veterans after release from prison. This is a mind-benders for an American as I stop to realize these are Nazi soldiers whom we are taught were quite ruthless. Yet for those caught on the Russian side of the wall, the fate for them after prison is to be sent to uranium mines in Russia where they will be worked until they die. Even for those on the American side, there is no work, homes are frequently bombed out, and food is in short supply. Until the currency reform happens(also mentioned in this tale), no one really wants to buy or sell anything.
It was interesting to read some translations of quotes that are different in this book than we know. e.g. Evensong of matthias Claudius (p. 191); God Gave Me a Little Light (Negro spiritual)(p. 267). ( )

Lovely follow-up to The Ark. One cares passionately about these people and their ruined Germany. The sheer grit of these farmers is humbling. It rings true, especially the "rascally boys". Highly recommended. ( )
