9780091956622: Shoes for Anthony

‘They’re running wild. Feral! If I had a shilling for every time a Scott Street boy said he was doing something when he was doing something else entirely I’d be living in Cardiff in a house made of Lardy cake. What did I say? Bad things will happen!’

The idea of the war coming to their small, impoverished Welsh mining village always seemed remote, but with one explosive event and the arrival of the Americans preparing for the invasion of France, the people of Treherbert find their world turned upside down.

But war brings distrust, lies and danger. And as the villagers find themselves hopelessly divided, Anthony, an 11-year-old who hasn’t had a pair of shoes in years, is going to have to choose between what is popular and what is right.

Joyous, thrilling and nostalgic, Emma Kennedy’s Shoes For Anthony will have you wiping your eyes one moment and beaming from ear-to-ear the next.

Product Description:

The idea of the war coming to their small, impoverished Welsh mining village always seemed remote, but with the fireball of a downed German aircraft, and the place crawling with Americans preparing for the invasion of France, young Anthony and his Bevan Boy elder brothers find their world turned upside down.

But as well as excitement, war brings distrust, envy, lies and danger, and as tension and anger mount, the villagers find themselves hopelessly divided. Confused and afraid, it falls to Anthony, an 11 year-old in wellies, to search out the truth.

A wonderful World War 2 page-turner with beautifully drawn characters and dialogue that will have you beaming from ear to ear one moment, and wiping your eyes the next, Shoes For Anthony is Emma Kennedy’s first adult novel.

Product Description:

May 1944, just before the D-Day landings.

When a German plane transporting Polish POWs crashes into the Welsh mountainside, ten-year-old Anthony and his friends think it is the most exciting thing ever to happen in their small mining village. And when Anthony discovers the crash holds a survivor - one of the prisoners of war - befriending him is the only thing on his mind.

Only, what he doesn't know is that an innocent friendship can have disastrous consequences. There's a dark secret rumbling through the hillsides.
