Letters from the Lighthouse [9780571327584]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

'Like Michael Morpurgo and Philip Pullman, Carroll . . . knows she can keep her listeners in thrall.' - Telegraph

We weren't supposed to be going to the pictures that night . . . not when German bombs had been falling like pennies from a jar.

February, 1941. A bomb blast... a chance encounter... her mother's coat.

This is all Olive can remember of the night her sister Sukie went missing. With London unsafe, Olive and her brother are evacuated to the Devonshire coast to stay with a mysterious lighthouse keeper.

There, Olive must solve a mystery of her own: a strange coded note which seems to link Sukie to Devon, and to something dark and impossibly dangerous.

PRAISE FOR EMMA CARROLL:

    Letters from the Lighthouse

    Posted by Theresa Payne on 6th Mar 2021

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this as an adult and imagine that it is a very good book to be offered to a young teenager. It has plenty of historical interest for children who are studying the 2nd world war. I found it difficult to put down.

    I bought 15 copies for whole class guided reading in school. My Y5/6 class are really enjoying the book, learning new vocabulary and more about WW2. The service from agreatread.co.uk was very prompt and the books arrived in perfect condition.
