The Skylark’s War, by Hilary McKay ( paperback, 2018)


Winner of the Costa Book Award 2018 - Children's category.

The Skylarks' War is a beautiful story following the loves and losses of a family growing up against the harsh backdrop of World War One, from the award-winning Hilary McKay. Clarry and her older brother Peter live for their summers in Cornwall, staying with their grandparents and running free with their charismatic cousin, Rupert. But as they grow older, and the War encroaches ever more on their lives, how will Clarry cope? 

I loved this book, it's warm, funny and touching - suits everyone from 8 to 80 I think!
