Margit: Book Two, A Bit of Love, And A Bit of Luck by Kathy Kacer

Penguin Books Canada, 2005

It is 1946, and the war is finally over. Margit's beloved father has returned to his family after being held in a concentration camp, and Margit is thrilled. Her family is trying hard to do well in their new home, but Toronto is very different from Czechoslovakia. Her highly educated father cannot find work in this new country, and Margit starts to fail at school, which she hides from her parents. How can she disappoint the family she loves after they have been through so much to make a good life for her in Canada?
