The story: The magical power of music combines to influence three young people living through World War II, whose lives are changed forever by a single harmonica. A prophecy unites the three kids with three princesses, who wait in limbo for the harmonica’s purposes to be fulfilled, which will result in the princesses’ rescue. All they can do is wait…and hope that the music will set both the kids using the harmonica, and the princesses themselves, free.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: It’s hard to know how to describe this book. It’s mostly historical fiction, but it has strong fantasy and magical tie-ins, found mostly in bookend form at the beginning and end. It LOOKS huge, but it’s a really fast read. I thought it was great!
