Longlisted for the UKLA 2017 Book Award  The Second World War has officially ended, but the streets are still a battleground - for food, for shelter, for protection... Felix is in hiding to stay safe, but finds he has been left holding the baby - literally. An orphaned infant has been left in his care and he will do everything he can to protect the child, as the few incredible people did for him during the Holocaust.
