Publisher's Summary

Liverpool, 1915. Martha Rossi lives in a tenement with her husband and their five children. Despite working all the hours she can, the family doesn't have much money. So when Martha’s 14-year-old son, Joe, proudly enlists to fight for his country just to earn his mother an extra shilling, Martha is horrified. Despite her pleas and protests, Joe is dispatched to France within weeks. Unbeknown to them all, Joe’s act of selfless heroism will have huge implications for Martha and all the family.
As the dreaded telegrams begin to arrive from the front in France, mothers’ hearts are broken across the country. Spurred on by grief of her own, Martha Rossi begins a quest that will take her right to the doors of No.10 Downing Street....

very dodgy acent

the story was poor and the narrator was awful the scouse accent was really insulting and took a lot away from the book which made it a struggle to keep listening to the end.
