We’re very excited to be publishing Friends and Traitors next month – a gripping World War II story from Helen Peters about how two girls foil an aristocratic plot to bring down the government and hand the country to the Nazis.
And today we’re delighted to be sharing a preview of the book – you can read the first few chapters below!
When Sidney Dashworth’s school is evacuated to a huge stately home in the countryside, she thinks she’s going to spend the war being very bored. At least her brother must be having fun, flying his Spitfire all over France! But soon Sidney and a housemaid called Nancy discover that the Earl is up to no good. He has secret nighttime meetings with mysterious men from the government and seems to be hiding something sinister on his land. At first it’s all terribly thrilling, investigating by creeping about at night and finding secret passageways, but soon everything takes a deadly turn. Sidney’s brother goes missing over France and the war hits home with a terrible reality. The Earl and his evil plotters must be stopped, or nothing will ever be the same again…
