War took his hope, a horse gave him courage
Sam Angus grew up in Spain. She studied Literature at Trinity College, Cambridge, and taught A level English before becoming a ski wear designer. She lives between London and Exmoor with an improvident quantity of children, horses and dogs.
An entertaining read and the inclusion of emotional letters from father to son brings the story to life and will melt the hardest heart * The Guardian Children's Books * I gave the book five out of five because of the front cover and also because of the characters. I think the book cover looks very sad. Because the person who has drawn it has used nice dark shades. To make you think that it is very sad * Schools Book Club * Immaculately researched and based on true events, Angus's novel has all the warmth, charm and poignancy of The Railway Children and is a wonderful addition to children's wartime classic fiction. * Lancashire Evening Post * By combining real historical events with the interplay between child and beast, Angus has hit a formula that resonates with children from all backgrounds. * The Telegraph * This book is full of suspense, sorrow and mystery. If you like books like War Horse then you will enjoy this book. I really enjoyed this story and really identified with the characters. -- Reader Review * First News * New title from Soldier Dog author with much appeal to Morporgo fans. Great writing, heroic animals and wartime adventure. * The Bookseller's Buyers Guide *
