Preview: Hear it

In the warravaged England of 1940, Charlotte Bromley is sure of only one thing: Kitty McLaughlin is her best friend in the whole world. But when Charlottes scientist father makes an astonishing discovery that the Germans will covet for themselves, Charlotte is faced with an impossible choice between danger and safety. Should she remain with her friend or journey to another time and place? Her splitsecond decision has huge consequences, and when she finds herself alone in the world, unsure of Kittys fate, she knows that somehow, some way, she must find her way back to her friend. Written in the spirit of classic timetravel tales, this book is an imaginative and heartfelt tribute to the unbreakable ties of friendship.
