A Child In Burracombe

eAudiobook
Devon, 1943. In the village of Burracombe, "Dig for Victory" is more than just a wartime slogan. While the young men are away, everyone at home knows the war effort needs them too. When the Barton is requisitioned as a children's home, all of Burracombe rallies round to welcome their newest arrivals, particularly little Maddy Simmons. Still reeling from losing her mother and brother in the Plymouth blitz, and her father being killed at sea, Maddy has been sent to a different children's home to her beloved sister. As Maddy explores the village and makes new friends, she begins to feel settled. Could this be somewhere she could finally call home?
