When We Were WarriorsEmma Carroll
Summer, 1942. Air raids, rationing, the threat of invasion: everyday life in wartime Britain is pretty grim, and often pretty dull.
That’s what Stanley thinks, anyway – until his home is bombed and he’s evacuated to a remote old house with the mysterious name Frost Hollow Hall …
It’s what Olive thinks too – until she finds a body washed up on the beach at Budmouth Point …
Velvet just wishes she could be useful – and when the air raid warden brings in a ban that puts all the pets in peril, she grabs her chance.
Three thrilling stories about three different children, who find adventure, courage, untrainable dogs and an impossibly tall American GI where they least expect it.?
Set in World War Two, Emma Carroll explores the resilience, resourcefulness and inventiveness of children when their lives fall to pieces. Introducing some compelling new characters, as well as revisiting some familiar settings, these adventures are sure to win over new readers, as well as fans of old favourites such as?Letters from the Lighthouse?and?Frost Hollow Hall.
