The Goose Road
1916. Angelique Lacroix is hay-making when the postman delivers the news: her father is dead, killed on a distant battlefield. Now her own battle begins to save the family farm from bankruptcy – a struggle that will force her to cross France with her flock of magnificent Toulouse geese.
“This is a story young readers will remember long after GCSE timelines have been forgotten.” The Telegraph
“Blending real-life hardships and the horrors of WW1 with an overarching fairy tale-esque adventure, this is a classic David and Goliath story in which a girl steps up to fight multiple Goliaths, with large doses of determination, wit and a willingness to take risks. Highly recommended.” Joanne Owen, Love Reading for Kids.
