As a twelve year old child in London between the wars, Adele Talbot discovers in shocking circumstances that she is not her father's child and is removed from her family home. Adele suffers in an orphanage where she is emotionally and sexually abused and runs away to find her mother's family in Rye. She has to show determination and bravery to eventually discover the secrets which have been kept hidden from her and to find a way to reconnect with her mother's past. Against the backdrop of the 2nd World War, Adele's struggles and emotions make for a compelling and believable tale. (Kirkus UK)
