Julia Eccleshare's comment:
A tender love story and coming of age novel set against a backdrop of wartime uncertainty and it tells how the war effects the sleepy town that Rosie lives in and especially how it effect her and her search for love. Magorian’s wonderful stories are the perfect reads to curl up on a sofa with. Be sure to check out Just Henry, A Spoonful of Jam, Cuckoo In The Nest.

SynopsisA Little Love Song by Michelle Magorian
It is the summer of 1943 and war continues to rage. For Rose and her sister Diana, it's a time of independence and self-discovery as they find first loves. But when Rose unearths a love story from another war, she realises that wartime intensifies emotions, and maybe she isn't in love with Derry as she first thought she was.
Reviews'The author has a wonderful gift for hanging a richly woven tapestry around an essentially simple frame.'

About The Author
Michelle Magorian is undoubtedly one of the pre-eminent children’s writers of historical family drama and of books set around the Second World War. She may not be a household name but that’s purely because she doesn’t write as frequently as those more obvious bestselling novelists. Just Henry is her seventh novel. Unlike some authors Magorian writes when the time is right having first undertaken considerable research, followed by a lot of thinking time before actually putting pen to paper and then there’s always the very important rewrites to polish the story. Magorian loves the research and the writing in equal measure but particularly loves writing dialogue.
Interestingly, Magorian’s first love when she was younger was to be
an actress but she also loved writing and day dreaming – the perfect
combination for a successful novelist.
Here at Lovereading4kids we urge parents and children to try out the wonderful writing, experience the roller-coaster of emotions you’ll get from reading a Michelle Magorian novel. We’re confident you’ll be swept up into a time and place that should never be forgotten.
