"Seven-year-old Billy Rohan (Sebastian Rice Edwards) finds his childhood to be a time of great danger--and even greater discovery. From thunderous bombings at his own doorstep and the constant threat of Luftwaffe air raids to the landing of a German paratrooper in his neighborhood and the joyous obliteration of his much-hated school, Billy's young life is shaped--and even enriched--by the one positive thing war has brought him: liberation from the ordinary. And though Billy is surrounded by decimation and the smoking remnants of ruined lives, his sense of enchanted wonderment and innocence in the face of man's most destructive folly affect him in a way that alters his life forever." --

The serenity of this small country town is about to be shattered by a shocking revelation about one of its leading citizens. Major Herbert Armstrong is a man equally proud of his work in the justice system as he is of his beautiful garden. But he is a man at war. A pillar of the community, Armstrong is in conflict on three fronts: he constantly argues with his bad-tempered, domineering wife; has regular skirmishes with his bright and ambitious business rival; and wages a war of attrition against the dandelions that have colonised his beloved lawn...
