and one a Hungarian refugee. Giff’s well-drawn, believable characters and vivid prose style make this an excellent choice.”

Lily has planned a spectacular summer at Rockaway Beach at her family’s cozy house on the Atlantic Ocean. But by the summer
of 1944, World War II has changed almost everyone’s lives. Based on Patricia Reilly Giff’s moving novel, ArtsPower’s play explores what happens when people are brave
enough to forge new relationships and follow their heart.
