His wife, Lady Caroline, is a strong woman who defends her husband and the family against the Nazi threats. The family must endure bombings, starvation, and the fear of the Gestapo, while also trying to keep their spirits high. Moving, lyrical, and breathtaking, A Moving Target is a must-read for fans of historical fiction.; 8vo; 202 pages.
