Item description for That Girl of Pierre's (Young Adult Historical Bookshelf) by Robert Davis & Lloyd Lozes Goff...
Overview When Danielle, her grandmother Mathilde, and young brother Jeannot return to their village of Arsac le Petit near Bordeaux at the end of World War II, they are hoping for the best. But her parents, Pierre and Jeanne Dufour, and Marc, Danielle's sweetheart, are still missing. In addition, they find that greedy villagers have taken advantage of the family's absence. Now Danielle, Mathilde and Jeannot must all find work rather than give themselves to the restoration of their neglected vineyard as they had planned. In Danielle's determination to reclaim a life for the family and to combat the injustice of the swindle, she finds new strengths within herself. These strengths eventually call forth an entire village to awaken to the challenges they face-to relinquish old ways, to stand for the right, to face hurts and find forgiveness. A new form of cooperation is afoot, thanks to "that girl of Pierre's."

That Girl of Pierre's--A Young Woman of Spunk and Character Mar 31, 2007
A young woman of spunk and character. That is the heroine in That Girl of Pierre's. Facing the ravages of World War II, Danielle, her grandmother Mathilde, and younger brother Jeannot finally return to their village of Arsac le Petit near Bordeaux after three long, difficult years wandering on the road.
World War II has ended and their high hopes of being reunited with their own family at home are soon dashed as one after another crisis meets them. Where are Danielle's parents? Are they alive and well? Who has stolen their land? How will they survive with so little money? And what has happened to her beloved Marco, who joined the army?
Danielle overcomes these adversities and more through her determined spirit and clever wits. A heroine young readers will greatly admire. That Girl of Pierre's offers a fast moving plot with lots of unexpected surprises and memorable characters.
The reprint by Bethlehem Books has a very attractive, colorful cover that invites the reader to want to know more.
