The Dark Hills Divide by Patrick Carman

Elyon is a land of dark hills, enchanted forests, and great walls that connect and encircle the cities of Lathbury, Turlock, Lunenburg, and Bridewell like spokes in a wagon wheel. On her annual summer trips to Bridewell with her father, the mayor of Lathbury, Alexa Daley spends much of her time dreaming of escape. Having lived within the walls all of her 12 years, she wants nothing more than to explore the uncharted wilderness beyond.

Andrews Sisters

During the war years, the Andrews Sisters sang many hit songs.  In our story, Meggie hears them singing “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” on a nieghbor’s radio.

Here they are dressed in uniform.  Left to right:  Maxene, Patty,  and LaVerne.
