Summer 1941. For Peter, the war is a long way away, being fought by a faceless enemy. Until the night a German plane is shot down over woods that his missing dad looked after before he went off to fight. Peter rushes to the crash site to see if there’s something he can keep, but what he finds instead is an injured young German airman. The enemy. And helping him seems like the right thing to do . . .

‘Bombing raids, a crashing German plane and an encounter with a Nazi soldier – what could be more exciting?’
