Polly Andrews and Dick Lang have become good friends now. Then Aunt Jemima blows in with the storm. The bullets have long gone and the air is feeling a little too festive for wartime River Valley Leavenworth. And then Trudy shows up...and ruins the perfect happy picture by threats and rumors. Hold your breath with Polly as she finds out that peace in wartime is only a dream. A dream that soon passes and leaves her with its haunting melody of one-time friendships.
Then theres Dick. Is he really the one who stole from her neighbors and uncle Pierre? He admits to nothing...but he doesnt defend himself either. And who is the gambler? A spy? Worse? Can Polly find the thief before its too late?
