What's the book about...
FROM THE BLITZ TO THE HEART OF WALES
A heartwarming tale set at the time of the 1940s Blitz of Salford and Manchester. Little Arthur, Johnny and Lizzie are rescued from the 1940 Christmas Blitz of Salford by their teacher. After a long and beautiful journey through the heart of Mid-Wales, they arrive in the village of Llandybie. The children learn about life on a rural farm and take part in school activities whilst learning Welsh and the culture of Wales.
Anne and Scott are now working on their next charity book called 'The Football Trials' for the charity called CRY.
