How can you hate someone in the present and love them in the past?
Fliss’s mum needs peace and quiet to recuperate from a long illness, so they both move to the countryside to live with Margot, Fliss’s stern and bullying grandmother. Life on the farm is tough and life at school is even tougher, so when Fliss unearths Margot’s wartime diary, she sees an opportunity to get her own back.
But Fliss soon discovers Margot’s life during the evacuation was full of adventure, mystery . . . and even passion. What’s more, she learns a terrible secret that could tear her whole family apart . . .
I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. I love the cover it is so vibrant, it makes you want to dive straight in. This story is about Fliss and how she and her mum( Fliss’s mum isn’t well) go to live with her very stern grandmother. Fliss comes across her grandmother’s diary and can’t help but take a peak. Well she does more than take a peak she reads the whole diary. Expect emotions, love, friendship and ups and downs in this very powerful novel. I really did admire Fliss and all that she did for her mum. I like how the diary was set out in a different font and learning about what life was like back then for Margot.
