Our Castle by the Sea

Lucy Strange

This year we’re introducing a Book of the Month at CCB! We plan to highlight some of our favourite titles and would love to hear your thoughts about the books, and any BOTM suggestions you have! January’s Book of the Month is a fantastic children’s story by Lucy Strange set during WWII – a tale loved by young and old!

Lucy lives in a lighthouse with her family during the second world war. Her father has a key job as the lighthouse keeper but her mother is German and suspicion falls on the family…. Who is luring enemy planes to the coast? Why is Lucy’s older sister sneaking off at night? Who is the mysterious old man wandering the cliffs? A brilliant adventure story based on real events from the war.
