A Medal for Leroy
The long awaited new novel of identity, loss and the lingering effects of war, from master storyteller Michael Morpurgo, second biggest children’s author in the UK and best-selling author of War Horse, now a sold-out Broadway smash and an Oscar-nominated film.
Michael doesn’t remember his father, who died in a Spitfire over the English Channel. And his mother, heartbroken and passionate, doesn’t like to talk about him. But then Michael’s aunt gives him a medal and a photograph, which begin to reveal a hidden story.
A story of love, loss and secrets. A story that will change everything – and reveal to Michael who he really is….
