Looking for the perfect nostalgia read to while away lazy summer days? Try this wartime mystery set by the Devon seaside. Think Enid Blyton crossed with Goodnight Mr Tom – but with a dark seam of real danger. Enjoy! (You absolutely will.) London, 1941. Bombs are dropping from the sky like pennies from a jar when Olive and her little brother, Cliff, are evacuated to Devon. Where will they end up? How about – living in a lighthouse? Envy!! It’s just a shame the lighthouse keeper doesn’t really like kids. To win him round, Olive becomes his post-girl, carrying letters to the village. But one day Olive finds a coded note hinting at a dark and deadly secret. A secret linked to her big sister Suzie, who vanished in a London air raid months ago…
