Times are hard but a young girl clings to her dreams in this powerful and poignant historical novel.

It is 1930, the height of the Great Depression. Mary Dyer’s father has left home in search of work, leaving his beloved racing pigeons in Mary’s care – much to her mother's disapproval. During that long, hard summer there is barely enough money for bread, let alone pigeon feed, yet Mary clings to her dreams of racing glory, propelling her into ever deeper conflict with her mother.

A sensitive, beautifully written story... it has great depth. --Susan Hill, The Sunday Times

It is the measured tone of the narrative and its humble, quiet characters which leave a lasting impression. (5-star review on her last title, "No Shame, No Fear) --Books for Keeps
