Product description

Michael can’t remember his father, an RAF pilot who was killed in a Spitfire battle over the Channel. And his French mother, heartbroken and passionate, doesn’t like to talk about him. But when Michael’s Auntie Snowdrop gives him a medal and a faded photo, a story begins to be told. A hidden story of love and loss, courage and family secrets. A story that will change everything – and show Michael who he really is…

  • A powerful novel from master writer Michael Morpurgo
  • Inspired by the true life of black army officer Walter Tull
  • Michael’s books include War Horse and Private Peaceful
  • Explores themes of identity, family and the legacy of war

    this book was fantastic! i like books that are from the persons point of view but are still fiction, if that makes sense! this book was a mixture of sadness, love and happiness! it was just fantastic! i love Michael Morpurgo and his books are just inspirational! this book was brilliant just like all his other books!
