"During World War II, the threat of bombing causes many people to flee London for the safety of the countryside. Among them is 12-year-old Cecily, who (along with her mother, her brother Jeremy, and a fellow evacuated child named May) moves into Heron Hall, her Uncle Peregrine's old country manor. Uncle Peregrine entertains the children with a dark, historical tale of two young, imprisoned princes, but it's not until Cecily and May discover two unusual boys in the ruins of a nearby castle that the chilling truth behind Uncle Peregrine's story begins surface. Past and present collide in this mysterious and quietly suspenseful read."

This historical fiction tale set in London during WWII rings true even though there is a bit of fantasy included. The characters are believable. For grades 5-8.
