YOU can almost hear the wail air-raid sirens in Leith-born Millie Gray's latest novel, Crystal's Song.
The Glass family is struggling to make ends meet. Father Tam has been taken captive by the Germans and wife Dinah and the kids fear the worst. As Dinah takes her comfort in the arms of various soldiers, the kids, including the head-strong Crystal, are evacuated from their Leith home. However, when Tam returns unexpectedly, the family must face the past to forge a future. A warm, humorous tale of hardship and survival.
