Bloomsbury presents The Valley of Lost Secrets by Lesley Parr, read by Iestyn Arwel.
When Jimmy is evacuated to a small village in Wales, it couldn’t be more different from London. Green, quiet and full of strangers, he instantly feels out of place.
But then he finds a skull hidden in a tree, and suddenly the valley is more frightening than the war. Who can Jimmy trust? His brother is too little; his best friend has changed.
Finding an ally in someone he never expects, they set out together to uncover the secrets that lie with the skull. What they discover will change Jimmy – and the village – forever.
A mesmerising mystery about bravery and brotherhood from an outstanding new voice.
"With echoes of Carrie's War, and Goodnight Mister Tom, Parr brings her own fresh voice to what already feels like a wartime classic. This story is quietly brutal and brilliantly heartfelt. I absolutely ADORED it.' — Emma Carroll
'Evocative and heartfelt, The Valley of Lost Secrets already reads like a classic. A celebration of kindness and friendship at a time of upheaval, it's gripping, heart-breaking and yet full of hope. I loved it with all my heart' —Liz Hyder, author of Bearmouth
'An evacuee story with all the makings of a classic.' —Anna Fargher, author of The Umbrella Mouse"
