This book is set in World War 2, but it is about a topic that I guarantee you won't have thought about before. Lizzie Butterworth's Mum was killed by a German bomb, her Dad is a conscientious objector, he does not believe in war and refuses to go and fight. This means that he is chased by the police. The book follows the struggles of the family as they try, desperately, to stay together. They meet kind people who want to help... and those who totally disagree with what Lizzie's Dad is.
I really enjoyed this book, it was very thought provoking and a different angle to anything that you might have read about the war before.The characters are wonderful. A fantastic read similar to Carrie's War' and 'Goodnight Mister Tom'.
