Young Ravens

A novel by

A very sensitively written story of a family growing up in Sheffield during the Second World War, recalling memories that people of her age experienced during those extraordinary and anxious times.
The drab inevitable wartime routine of Sheila Raven and her little brother Fred in Derby is suddenly changed for ever when their parents' marriage ends violently, with the unexpected return from Africa of their father. He insists that his children are cared for by his parents in Sheffield away from their mother and a different, more challenging way of life begins for Sheila. She makes a wide range of new friends, including a warm fraternal relationship with a German prisoner of war, a circumstance which causes her father to experience intense fury when he returns from Italy in 1945.
