Internationally bestselling author John Marsden takes us beyond The Tomorrow Series ... but the war isn't over.

For Ellie Linton, being back on the farm with her parents is what makes the terrible things that happened during the war -- the things she, Homer, Lee, Fi, and the others had to do -- all worthwhile. It's where she belongs.

But the war won't let her go. A devastating tragedy has shattered any hope she ever had to reclaim her life, or herself. It's a new kind of fight. And the enemy isn't always from the other side of the border.

Another spectacular novel of war and its consequences by bestselling author John Marsden.

The Tomorrow Series may have been a tad better, but these were still amazing... the tragedy, the loss... they are SO well written!

Not as riveting as the Tomorrow Series but still a great read nonetheless.
I found it interesting to learn about what the characters did post-war.

not as good as the tomorrow series but not bad all the same. It is interesting hearing about her life after the war.

Not as fast paced and exciting as the Tomorrow series, but I guess that's to be expected since the war is now over. I still really enjoyed this book.

Following on from the Tomorrow Series is John Marsden's, The Ellie Chronicles. Following Ellie through post-war and invasion recovery while still dealing with being a teenager.
