Summerland

"Set in England, at the end of WW2, a powerful novel about identity, bravery and tolerance with messages that are as strong and relevant today as they were in 1946."

October, 1946. The Red Cross escort a group of child refugees from Europe to England. Among them is Brigitta – a serious, silent figure with worn clothes and a small cardboard suitcase containing a single grey glove. Arriving in London, Brigitta breaks from the group and runs . . .
Brigitta's mission: to reach Summerland Hall and find the one person who can solve a wartime mystery. But Summerland holds secrets and shadows of its own… and perhaps the key to a new life and new beginnings.
An extraordinarily rich tale of love, prejudice, truth and forgiveness, inspired by real events.
