Its 1943, and everyone says the war will be over soonWorld War II, that isbut Teresa Marks wonders exactly when that day will come. Her older brother, Jeff, is fighting overseas, and Teresa worries about him, hoping hell get home to Kansas safely. As a way of speeding Jeffs return, Teresa and her dad help the war effort by planting a victory garden. For two years, theyve planted tomatoes (Jeffs favorite!) and won taste-testing duels with a curmudgeonly neighbor. But this spring, when the neighbor is hospitalized, Teresa rallies her friends to tend to his garden. She even considers using her secret for growing better tomatoes on her rivals plants. But her faith in secret weapons, in victory gardens, in people, and in life itself is shattered as the war rages on abroad and death strikes close to home.
