Anne-Laure Bondoux, Y. Maudet (Translator). One realistic-fiction book that I read recently was A Time of Miracles. The book's plot points and events are similar to ALWtW in a multitude of ways: a young boy born in a rural land is found traveling to places of refuge after war breaks out. Both books have a theme of loss and recovery.
