Moonlight and Ashes by Rosie Goodwin
Moonlight and Ashes by Rosie Goodwin
5.0 out of 5 stars Superb read, 20 Feb 2014
I have recently discovered Rosie Goodwin and, three of her novels later, she is my new favourite author. What a find! I love novels set during WW2, as my own history knowledge is sadly lacking and I feel this is such an important time for us to know about and keep alive, and Rosie Goodwin not only describes the times accurately in this book but has you there in the Anderson shelter with her main characters, living it. Her characters are solid, likable and easy to relate to, and show steely strength and courage. Rosie doesn't shy away from tragedy, and her novels break your heart in places - have the kleenex ready.

The lower ratings given to this film that I have read or heard have been from older audiences. My nearly 5 year old son adored this film and is now Planes mad, as are his friends! He loved Cars and Cars 2, but Cars 2 is inappropriate in places for a small child - we have it on dvd but fastforward two parts (the spy car getting tortured is too scary and would cause nightmares). The Cars films are still entertaining for adults to watch, whereas Planes does appeal more to the younger audience. But this is a Disney film - isn't that the point?! I thoroughly recommend it to parents with children aged maybe 7 and under. This made a perfect non-scary debut film for my son to see at the cinema.
