On Christmas Day: A heart-warming wartime saga to bring hope and happiness for winter 2017
A family at breaking point. A nation at war…
1914. Young Lexi doesn’t want much – just her family’s happiness. She’s been working all the hours she can at the local sweet shop to help her mother lift her little brother and sister out of poverty. Maybe one day, if she tries hard enough, they can save enough to leave their tiny, cramped flat – and terrifying landlord, Mr McCann – behind. Although Lexi can’t help but wish her friendship with the landlord’s son, Johnny, could turn into something more.
They say it will all be over by Christmas. But with the country still at war when the snow begins to fall, Lexi turns all her attention to making the sweet shop’s windows cheery, and keeping her family’s sprits high. And, with courage, she might one day manage to give her family a magical Christmas, the like of which they never dared to dream of…
An unforgettable story of family, friendship and courage which will warm your heart and fill you with pride this Christmas. The perfect emotional wartime read for fans of Katie Flynn and Dilly Court.
