Catching Falling Stars


The world is at war and London is no longer a safe place to be. Glory and her little brother have been sent to the countryside, far from everything they know and love.

To Glory, being an evacuee feels worse than the threat of falling bombs. The woman they must live with is cold and unwelcoming, and the village children are just as unfriendly. And even in the country they’re not safe from enemy planes.

But what Glory doesn’t know is that her life is about to change in ways she never imagined.

“For Bryn”

My neighbour Bryn kindly read through an early copy of the book and fact-checked some of the historical detail. He knew his stuff, since he lived though WW2, when the book is set!
