Stars Shall Be Bright


Write a Review

A poignant and moving story of one small family caught up in the consequences of World War One. Inspired by the true events of the UK's worst rail disaster. James, William and Belle are left all alone when their mother passes away. With their father fighting on the Front in the Great War, there's no one to look after them except the mean neighbour lady. But James hatches a plan to take his siblings away and find someone who might know where their father is. All they need is to get a train to the city - but can the children ever hope to reunite with their father? Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+
