And while 16-year-old Hallie and her sister wait to see who will return from the distant battlefield, they struggle to maintain their family farm. When Hallie hires a veteran to help them, the war comes home in ways no one could have imagined, and soon Hallie is taking dangerous risks, and keeping desperate secrets. But even as she slowly learns more about the war and the men who fought it, ugly truths about Hallie's own family are emerging. And while monsters and armies are converging on the small farm, the greatest threat to Hallie's home may be Hallie herself."--From publisher.

This is an unusually well-written young adult novel focused on the relationship between two sisters in what first seems to be a fantasy world, and is slowly revealed to be a post-apocalyptic version of our own. Very compelling and worth reading!

The war is over, but weird monsters are appearing on her farm. The storyline for the book is interesting. But the book feels like it is missing something.
