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.
