Online reviews

Fantastic read – based on a true story.

Absolutely brilliant – sensitively written from the child’s perspective but covering an amazing historical event – would suit any child from about 10 up and all adults. Very moving.

I couldn’t put this book down. It describes the monumental carnage that occurred on Slapton Sands in June 1944. I thoroughly recommend this as a holiday read.

A gripping story about the Second World War

This book is beautiful. You can’t stop reading even though you don’t want it to end. The writing is sparse yet full of feeling without a trace of sentimentality. I understood and cared about these people. In this imaginative tale about families who reacted to a true historical event, I wanted to know what happened next. A jewel!
