I am voluntarily reviewing a copy of That Burning Summer through the publisher and Netgalley:
This book takes us back to July, 1940, when sixteen year old Peggy, and her eleven year old brother Ernest hear a crash out by the marsh.
Ernest is trying to make sense of what is happening in the world around him, he reads pamplets.
Peggy soon discovers a Pilot in the Marsh, a young polish naval airman named Henryk, the young pilot is afraid, and unwilling to return to the fighting.
Henryk soon finds himself hiding in a church. Peggy sneaks food to him, risking everything.
Will Peggy fall for this forbidden airman?
Find out in That Burning Summer
Five out of five stars.
