A heartwarming story of friendship and family during the first Christmas of World War Two.
Autumn 1939 and London prepares to evacuate its young. In Number 5 Jubilee Street, Bermondsey, 10-year-old Connie is determined to show her parents that she's a brave girl and can look after her twin brother, Jessie. She won't cry, not while anyone's watching.
