Letters From The Lighthouse

Author: Emma Carroll

Reading age: Year 5+

Summary: Set in WWII, this story is well plotted with lots of mystery and intrigue along the way! Olive and her younger brother lose their older sister Sukie when they flee the cinema one night when an air raid begins! The children are evacuated off to Cornwall. Olive is sure something is going on that she isn’t being told about and she’s convinced her sister Sukie is somehow involved. Underlying themes of prejudice are woven throughout the story and lots of differing opinions on situations taking place in the War are offered. It gives you a real sense of what it was like to be an evacuee fleeing London to the countryside. 


– Fantastic language and emotions conveyed.

– A great WW2 story for upper KS2 to link History and English together.

– A great storyline that’s gripping and full of intrigue.

– Gives an amazing and life-like insight into the lives of evacuees.
