When Lydia’s house is destroyed by an explosion in the blitz, she sees it as the perfect opportunity to flee and join a group of evacuees to safety in South Wales. What she needs to run from is just as much putting her life at risk than any bomb. Arthur and Amy are two school children also evacuated out of London to the small peaceful village in South Wales. While some of the characters are fleeing from danger, and to find safety, others are walking straight into events that will change their lives forever.
This is one of the most incredible moving stories that you can read, the author does not shy away from telling an amazing story, which covers some very dramatic events, and tragic circumstances. With a good balance of good and bad characters with an amazing storyline that is gripping, this wartime drama is not to be missed. I will look forward to reading more books by the author Julie McGowan.
