Orphaned during World War II, Roger MacKenzie Wakefield believed that his mother died during the London Blitz, and that his father, an RAF pilot, was killed in combat. But this may not be the whole story.

"A story that is both moving and magical" (Northern Echo)
Author and book lover. History graduate.
overall the plot is reasonably workable it makes relative sense and you can see where it would work in with the larger books stories but it lacked the regular magic her usual books. I was very disappointed with the ending as I felt that it could have gone deeper and ended better. I was disappointed on a whole with this as it seemed to be rushed and didn't flow to well in comparison to her usual work. I feel like it should have been longer and more in depth, however I did see how it linked in and the sense it made to write it but I feel that it was stagnant in the pool of order and it held no excitement , a bit like background music whilst shopping.
another novella in the series
the narrator was quite dull in comparison to others but he was bearable.
As a fan I feel I would like to know more about each character's story in depth almost like a mini novel on their own , to know their story and become part of their life. I feel that this could have been done as the basis for a good story is there and there was a lot more needed to be said but I felt it was rushed and I would love to know more about Roger's story.
