This book contains 2 separate stories. The first story begins with a factual account of a huge fundraising effort during World War 2. Residents of Arnold in Nottingham donated enough money to buy a warship for the Royal Navy. It follows the fortunes of the vessel on North Atlantic Convoy duties and tells many tales of bravery by the crew, some of whom were in their teens.
The second story describes the loving restoration of a small, ex-naval cutter into a floating holiday home. It goes on to relive the glory days of the boat when it took part in the evacuation of the Dunkirk beaches in 1940 as one of the 'little ships'.
Tailored for dyslexic readers but can be read by anyone.
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas invites you to spend the holidays with the Wallflowersâ€”four young London ladies who finally found the men of their dreamsâ€¦and will join together once more to help the worldâ€™s most notorious rogue meet his match.
These 25 heartwarming stories are set during the holidays in the years between 1906 and today, amid historic events when people came together and found opportunities to exchange the true gifts of Christmas: kindness, encouragement, forgiveness, peace, hope, belonging, and more. The main character of each story is a boy or girl, man or woman whose heart opens to give or receive love, bringing personal transformation and causing them to always look back and say, "That was the best Christmas!" Each story is penned by A.R. Cecil with a gentle twinkle in her eye, giving the reader delightful twists of plot, and revealing Mrs. Cecil's warm understanding of human relationships-with each other and with the Creator who sent his Son that first Christmas Day. A story collection that will rekindle the reader's own memories, giving perspective to the present and hope for the future. Perfect to read during Advent or any time of the year.
