I have always been interested in history, yet somehow know almost nothing about messenger pigeons and their role in wars. This excerpt jumped out at me immediately, especially as a story just made the news today about a century-old message from a messenger pigeon!
Olive Bright is a crisp and witty character to take us on such a journey, a pigeoneer during the war! Although her brother and her friend are off to the war, that doesn't mean her life at home is void of adventures, and I'm excited to learn more about her journey!
I enjoy the book cover, and the directional line of the road from Olive and her pigeon to the village is visually appealing!
