Life on the Hungarian plains is changing quickly for Jancsi and his cousin Kate. Father has given Jancsi permission to be in charge of his own herd, and Kate has begun to think about going to dances. Jancsi hardly even recognizes Kate when she appears at Peter and Mari's wedding wearing nearly as many petticoats as the older girls wear. And Jancsi himself, astride his prized horse, doesn't seem to Kate to be quite so boyish anymore. Then, when Hungary must send troops to fight in the Great War and Jancsi's father is called to battle, the two cousins must grow up all the sooner in order to take care of the farm and all the relatives, Russian soldiers, and German war orphans who take refuge there.

Kate and Jancsi are growing up while the shadows of World War I are gathering over their home on the Hungarian plains. This book takes a look at the terrible consequences of war for ordinary people, the hatred and prejudice that seem to fuel war, and their longing for peace to return - it is never too dark for children but does treat the subject seriously. A moving book which is not quite as much fun as the first one although Kate still has her moments!
