“Something’s up. Something big too, very big. At school, in the village, whoever you meet, it’s all anyone talks about. It’s like a sudden curse has come down on us all. It makes me wonder if we’ll ever see the sun again.”
It’s 1943. Battles are raging across Europe, but the idyllic seaside village where Lily lives is scarcely touched by the war. But one day, Lily’s family and 3000 other villagers are told to leave their homes: no exceptions, no arguments. Soon the whole area is blockaded by razor-wire and keep-out signs, behind which Allied forces prepare for D-day. But no-one tells Adolphus Tips, Lily’s beloved cat, where he can and can’t go. And when Adolphus disappears into the danger zone, with Lily in pursuit, what they find behind the barbed wire will change their lives forever… Vividly evoking rural England during the Second World War, this heartwarming and insightful book poignantly explores the human legacy of the war.
