Furthermore, can Olive and Cliff penetrate the chill of their evacuation and find safety, solace and thereafter, Sukie? After being evacuated, Olive and her brother Cliff are evacuated to Devon and the only place available is a lighthouse. Her older sister Sukie went missing in an air raid, and she's desperate to discover what happened to her. There’s so many great Children’s historical fiction available at the minute and Carroll continues that trend. Bombs are dropping from the sky like pennies from a jar when Olive and her little brother, Cliff, are evacuated to Devon.

See our Remarkables Archive for some that are no longer in print, but which we are happy to try to track down. I particularly liked the character Sukie and I like the part where the bomb goes off while they are at the cinema.The story begins when Olive, her older sister Suki and her younger brother Cliff go to the cinema and get caught in an air raid attack. its a suspenseful book that uses good vocabulary and relates to real peoples lives in the past (1941). There are some true heart-in-your-mouth moments and heavily moving parts that make it so difficult to put it down.

I was at my last school for 4 years and we had ********* book fairs every term – and every term, I was disappointed by the narrow range of books. After months of air raid bombings in London, Olive and Cliff are evacuated to the Devon coast for their safety. I would highly recommend this book to a person who likes adventures and mysteries, and unexpected endings. My favourite part of Letters from the Lighthouse was the ending because the last line is really gripping. This book is about a brother and sister, Cliff and Olive, who are evacuated from London to Budmouth Point during the Second World War.

From Nobel Laureates Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter to theatre greats Tom Stoppard and Alan Bennett to rising stars Polly Stenham and Florian Zeller, Faber Drama presents the very best theatre has to offer.

This delightful new book is an excellent text for encapsulating experiences of World War II from the viewpoint of children. This is an absolutely gripping historical mystery set during the Second World War, and one which I read in one sitting as I just couldn’t put it down! Bronnie is so lovely with the boys and we also felt that having a man enthusing about the books set a great example. I was a bit slow off the mark in reading Letters from the Lighthouse so there was a lot of discussion online already however I had heard only positive things about it.This experience has been fantastic primarily for the children, the school and also for me (professionally). Why are we not allowed to find out what is in Ephraim's cupboards or the top floor, and finally the big question- Where is Sukie and what does the note mean? In the midst of World War Two, a bombing in London becomes the explosive catalyst that sees two sisters separated.
