Waterstones Says

Boasting an interactive clue to help readers to solve the story's central mystery, the second novel from the author of former Children's Book of the Month The Valley of Lost Secrets finds Natty confronted with the shocking aftermath of war when she moves to a new village. 

A stirring historical adventure from the author of The Valley of Lost Secrets.

The First World War has ended, but it hasn't gone away. When Natty has to move to a new village, she meets two young soldiers who are still battling the effects of war. Huw can't forget the terrible things he's seen, but Johnny doesn't even remember who he is.

As Natty tries to keep a secret and unravel a mystery, she finds her own way to fight for what she believes in - and learns that some things should never be forgotten...

This mesmerising historical mystery includes an interactive clue so readers can unravel the mystery alongside the characters.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A heartfelt, hopeful tale of the human spirit's incredible ability to recover' - Emma Carroll

'This wonderful second novel firmly establishes Lesley as one of our finest writers of historical fiction. We should talk about her in the same way we talk about Hilary McKay, Emma Carroll & Tom Palmer... I hope it reaches the wide audience that it truly deserves' - Phil Earle

'With echoes of Carrie's War and Goodnight Mister Tom, Parr brings her own fresh voice to what already feels like a wartime classic. This story is quietly brutal and brilliantly heartfelt. I absolutely adored it' - Emma Carroll, author of Letters from the Lighthouse
