Reviews for this book:

yes'Emma Carroll does it again! A beautifully written story that brings her characters to life. You feel like you are with them every step of the way.'

yes'On the cover of one of Carroll’s books, she is proclaimed as the Queen of historical fiction. I now understand why. I would have gobbled this WWII story up in one greedy reading session as a child. Drama, suspense and lots of action where the kids have to solve stuff themselves.'

yes'A wonderful story, beautifully told. It deserves all the praise it has received and is destined to become a classic.'

yes'It's really intriguing and mysterious. Emma Carroll knows how to keep readers thrilled!'

yes'Well, what can I say, Emma Carroll has brought an enlightened and heart-wrenching version of events during WW2 with the poignancy of Goodnight Mister Tom and the sad reality of the plight of Jewish refugees trying to flee to the UK.'
