Summary

The outbreak of the Second World War throws a young girl's life and family into turmoil.

England is at war. Growing up in a lighthouse, twelve-year-old Pet's world has been one of storms, secret tunnels and stories about sea monsters. But now the clifftops are a terrifying battleground, and her family is torn apart.

This is the story of a girl who is small, afraid and unnoticed. A girl who freezes with fear at the enemy planes ripping through the skies overhead. A girl who is somehow destined to become part of the strange, ancient legend of the Daughters of Stone.

Book of the week

A real page turner with many threads skillfully interwoven. It's exciting, heartbreaking and uplifting and shows how the devastation of war affects everything. Worth having.
