It's 1914. Fay can shoot a rabbit and make a mean nettle stew. She understands morse code and the semaphoric alphabet. She knows where the penguins nest and when the humpbacks migrate. But until she starts writing to a soldier named Charlie, she's never known friendship - and she's never had a friend to lose.

This beautifully illustrated story for all ages combines the considerable talents of award-winning author, Dianne Wolfer, and first-time book illustrator, Brian Simmonds.


A Childrens story suitable for adults


I enjoyed this book as it gave another perspective to a very historic occasion - the gathering of the ships in Albany (Western Australia) port prior to departure for the Great War. Significant to me as my father was on one of those ships. It also gives young people an insight into the life and times of that era.
