Product description

Winner of the Costa Children’s Book Award 2018.

Pure magic. The Casson Family author’s dazzling Great War story. Love, loss and (of course) family. Clarry and her older brother Peter don’t have much of a home life with their cold, distant father. They live for the summer holidays in Cornwall, staying with their grandparents and running free with their brave, handsome cousin Rupert. But this year, things are changing. Many things are the same: boarding school for Peter, and a dull home routine for Clarry. But the shadow of war is looming ever closer. When Rupert goes off to fight at the front, Clarry can feel their skylark summers slipping away. How will the family survive this horrific war?

  • An exquisite wartime novel full of hope and heartbreak
  • Hilary McKay is one of the best writers around today
  • Her books include the wonderful Casson Family series
  • She has won the Whitbread Award and Guardian Prize

“McKay is incapable of writing an uninteresting character or a dull scene… I loved it.” Mary Hoffman

“The best children’s book I’ve read this year.” Katherine Rundell

“The kind of classic that rings with beauty and conviction and heart-stopping emotion.” Amanda Craig
