Publisher's Summary

On a frozen January evening in 1944, Nancy Levin and her three-year-old daughter, Emily, flee their East London home as an air raid siren sounds. Not far away, Diana Meadows and her own three-year-old daughter, Abigail, are lost in the blackout as the air raid begins.

They hurry to the safety of the underground tube station, but in wartime people will do anything to survive - even at the expense of others.

Critic Reviews

"A beautifully written exploration of desperation and hope...captures the essence of the era with subtlety and style. A remarkable story of family, survival and how one decision can change lives for better or worse." (Jane Harper, best-selling author of The Dry)

great storyline

A lovely read. A view into another world that I knew little about. And an umpredictable interesting storyline.
