I loved this story. Even though I grew up in the 1950's not 40's it resonated with me and felt familiar in a reassuring way. It is lovingly told and heart warming. Why is it we no longer see real toy soldiers just images fighting on TV and computer screens? This is a first story to be proud of and I'm looking forward to reading more from Debbie Young.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun & Clever Tale With Wonderful Storytelling 19 Sept. 2015
By Shay Tressa DeSimone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this story. :) Though it's set near the beginning of World War II, there's no fighting or any of the death/grimness I often associate with wartime novels; instead, it offers a keen look into the dynamics of one British family from the eyes of a young girl. Debbie writes beautifully, and this resurrected tale (it was originally published decades ago in a magazine) is characterized by the same wonderful storytelling found in her more recent writing. The four main characters are very well developed, and their interesting quirks bring them to life -- I found myself empathizing with Violet, rooting for her dad, and rolling my eyes over her mother's and sister's narcissistic tendencies (let's face it, we've all known people who think only of themselves when faced with adversity). Yet in spite of all the family drama, the tale ends with a very satisfying conclusion. Treat yourself to this charming story -- I promise you won't regret it!
