Check out this review of the book, Shelter, by Sarah Franklin, as featured on the Little Bookness Lane blog
Publisher: Bonnier Zaffe
Publication date: 27th July 2017
From the rustic window of this rather exquisite cover lies a magnificent view of the purity of nature, its shifting seasons mirroring the struggles of life, as the shadow of a brutal foe falls upon our shores.
Shelter. A simple one word title captures the underlying theme perfectly: the canopy of trees where apprentice Lumberjills are schooled, the welcome the foresters extend to an outsider or the protection offered by the woodland itself, no matter where your own roots may lie.
Narrated throughout the final year of conflict, with fleeting periods of reflection, the ravages of World War II compel the characters to confront the consequences of their actions, stretching their resilience until they rediscover the true meaning of home.
The ancient forest has witnessed significant changes over time yet it perseveres, regenerates and passes no judgement, much like its dependants.
