"Empowering..Blackford masterfully brings this era to life in this simple, yet compelling story. A delightful read!"
—Mary Casanova, author of The Klipfish Code
Cheryl Blackford's debut novel is set in England during WWII and told from the dual perspectives of 10-year old Lizzie, a homesick girl evacuated from bomb-blitzed Hull to the remote Yorkshire valley, and Elijah, a local gypsy boy. When Lizzie discovers an abandoned baby, she goes in search of the child's parents. But Lizzie's quest to reunite the baby with her family leads her to a forbidden friendship with Elijah, and both of them must come to terms with a world clouded by prejudice and fear.
