Publisher's Summary

"They’re running wild. Feral! If I had a shilling for every time a Scott Street boy said he was doing something when he was doing something else entirely I’d be living in Cardiff in a house made of Lardy cake. What did I say? Bad things will happen!"

The idea of the war coming to their small, impoverished Welsh mining village always seemed remote, but with one explosive event and the arrival of the Americans preparing for the invasion of France, the people of Treherbert find their world turned upside down.

But war brings distrust, lies, and danger. And as the villagers find themselves hopelessly divided, Anthony, an 11-year-old who hasn’t had a pair of shoes in years, is going to have to choose between what is popular and what is right.

Joyous, thrilling and nostalgic, Emma Kennedy’s Shoes For Anthony will have you wiping your eyes one moment and beaming from ear to ear the next.

    "Great feel good story."

    Great story with nicely developed characters. I was caught up with the main characters almost immediately.
    The narrator did a remarkable job portraying each character.
    Definitely a thumbs up from me.

    "An emotional story"

    I laughed and cried in equal measure. The story takes you through a roller coaster of a ride. The narration is outstandjng and makes the story even mord powerful. I cannot recommend this book too highly. It is a must listen to.

    "Utterly Brilliant!"

    Having listened to two of Emma's travel books and loved them I was intrigued by her first foray into fiction. I was transfixed from the off. Shoes for Anthony is both incredibly moving but also hilariously entertaining. The story of Anthony's summer in a small mining town during the second world war is fraught with tragedy and triumph told through Anthony's own eyes. Emma's own narration is perfect. Can't recommend it highly enough.

    "Well worth buying"

    Anything written and narrrated by Emma Kennedy is always good but in this case the story from about half way through became very predictable.
