Private Peaceful

Author – Michael Morpurgo

Age – 12+

Tommo lives with his mum and two brothers, Charlie and Big Joe (who is simple,) in a small UK town pre WW1. Tommo blames himself for his father’s death years before, when a tree fell on him. His dad had saved his from the tree’s fall – but Tommo has kept these feelings secret.

Their best friend is Molly who both Tommo and Charlie love. But it is Charlie who Molly truly loves after a friendship/courtship of many years.

But then the brothers have to go off to war.

This is a wonderful story, which has also been made into a movie
