When writer Michelle O'Connell joined a march to commemorate soldiers who went off to fight in World War One, she was moved by how the event had a profound influence on her and her son.
Through the eyes of her son, Christopher, she has produced a touching story of the commemorative march, capturing the flavor of the times and the mixed emotions of the families left behind.
‘Leaving for the Front’ is a perfect way to give children an understanding of the challenges and emotions facing families as their young people go off to war.
