This is a pre-loved book with slight creasing to the front cover, but otherwise in good condition.
The four Wiltshire children live a comfortable middle-class English life. But as WWII overtakes the country, the family, like so many others, slowly disintegrates. Told partly from the perspective of the children, but not a children's book, Saplings is immensely readable . . . a dark inversion of the author’s best-known book, the children’s classic Ballet Shoes.
Saplings is Persephone Book number 16.
