Summary

The long awaited new novel of identity, loss and the lingering effects of war, from master storyteller Michael Morpurgo, second biggest children’s author in the UK and best-selling author of War Horse, now a sold-out Broadway smash and an Oscar-nominated film.
Michael doesn’t remember his father, who died in a Spitfire over the English Channel. And his mother, heartbroken and passionate, doesn’t like to talk about him. But then Michael’s aunt gives him a medal and a photograph, which begin to reveal a hidden story.
A story of love, loss and secrets. A story that will change everything – and reveal to Michael who he really is….
