The Salvaged Summer Trilogy – 3 Book Set



by Dominique Allen

Set in a time when there was no such thing as teenagers, only young boys as eager as grown men to do their bit… to fight for King and Country, however they were able. These are stories for all those who can remember such times – and for those who wish they could.

These evocative and uplifting tales are set in WWII in a small Lincolnshire village, as the spirited community adapt to wartime ways and the new RAF hospital. Characters and best intentions abound! A 14-year-old errand boy is spurred into action and inspires a young gang of Salvage Scamps to join him in ‘The Effort’. Equipped with bicycles, wheelbarrows and buckets, they manage to bring half the village in to their scrapes along the way…

Format: Hardback

Book set also includes a preview booklet of forthcoming titles in the Gertie’s Path series.
