Paper Wings by Linda Sargent Kentish woodland; hot, endless days of summer; a strange and touching friendship… Ruby and Peter think of the woods as their own: a place for adventure, for plans and projects, for secrets. But when Ruby is hurt in an accident, they find that a stranger is hiding there: Gabriel, a man haunted by wartime guilt and by the loss of ideals. Soon an alliance is formed – but others are watching, and the children unwittingly provoke long-held resentments, bringing themselves and Gabriel into danger.
Atmospheric and beautifully-realised, Paper Wings is a grown-up story about childhood, bringing innocence and experience into dramatic conflict.
