A young runaway. A boy's courage. An explosive adventure in 1940s England.

Dover, England. 1945: The first trains have brought evacuated children back to their families to face the hardships of life after World War II. Peter finds hope with his friends after the loneliness of the past years of living under the strict rule of his overbearing father.

But the mystery of a runaway's past awaits discovery in the dangerous tunnels beneath the Western Heights. And as the secrets between Peter and his friends begin to build, this brave young boy must risk everything if he is to finally find peace at the heart of his family...

BASED ON TRUE EVENTS: The post-war remnants of Dover are brought vividly to life in this gripping and entertaining adventure in 1940s Dover.

Packed full of personal detail on conditions at that time and the stories of boys returning from life as a evacuee, this book draws extensively on author Jane Phillips' own family history. Jane has taken much of the detail from real childhood memories. She began her career as a teacher and dramatist, and she now writes fiction for all ages. This is her second book and her first featuring her home town of Dover.

Praise for Jane Phillips:
