World War II has finally ended. Thirteen-year-old Annie de Leeuw and her sister have spent almost three years hiding in the upstairs room of a remote farmhouse in Holland. Now they can go home to rejoin their father and older sister. But saying goodbye to the courageous family who hid them is very difficult for Annie. And she finds that being home again isn't easy either. Her older sister has become a devout Christian. Her widowed father marries a wealthy woman who rejects the unsophisticated Annie. Gradually the teenager feels torn between nostalgia for the farm and desire for her new mother's approval. The Journey Back is a moving testament to the Dutch people's kindness and resilience during the war. It is also a poignant tale of a young woman striving to define her place in the world. Narrated by the author, this sequel to The Upstairs Room becomes an unforgettable listening experience.
