‘Spellbinding. Once you start reading you don’t want to put it down. It is emotional and your heart will go out to these children… I loved it. I couldn’t put it down’ NetGalley review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Two sisters. One secret. A daring wartime journey…
Desperate to escape their stepfather’s house, sisters Amy and Lillian stow away aboard a train full of children being evacuated from London and the threat of Hitler’s bombs.
Arriving in the seaside town of Worthing, they are taken in by kindly Norah and her husband Jim.
With their future now entrusted to strangers, can the girls finally find a safe harbour in these dark days of war?
And will they find the strength to confront what they have been running from, when their past finally catches up with them?
An absolutely heartbreaking and uplifting wartime story of courage, sisterhood and the power of love. Perfect for fans of Shirley Dickson, Glynis Peters and Lisa Wingate.
