Spurned by her Catholic grandfather and living in poverty, Leni joins the Hitler Youth before leaving school at fourteen to support her mother and younger brothers. With no-one... to protect her, a sadistic employer forces her to submit to secret systematic rape or face having her mother interned. Leni quickly learns to stay silent and keep her secret. As the war grinds to an agonising climax, Leni's family flees the advance of the Red Army. Surviving on her wits, she is transformed from a meek, cowed girl to protector of her family. In the post-war chaos she falls pregnant to her boyfriend and the little family finally escapes the devastated continent with migration to Australia under the International Refugee Organisation program. Now isolated in an alien land, they endure the hardships of the Bonegilla Migrant Hostel and face the enormous task of beginning a new life. But Leni's secrets remain and a stunning deathbed revelation sends her daughter, Annette, on a complex search that crosses three continents in a bid to unravel the web of intrigue that protects her mother's ultimate secret. War Child reveals one woman's enormous courage and desperation to protect those she loved most ... right until the final, extraordinary moment of her life.

            Masterton-born Len Frances joined New Zealand's war effort when qualifying for service in November 1940 and training became serious with the Pacific War's outbreak in December 1941. He was called into camp immediately, spending the first months of 1942 at Masterton's Solway Milit...ary Camp, training for the infantry. After officer training, he was posted to anti-aircraft guns and helped prepare reinforcements in the Wellington area - and married Jean. Part of the 10th reinforcement, Len left New Zealand in July 1943, reverting to the ranks in Egypt to join 6th Field Regiment as a gunner. He served right through the Italian Campaign, feeding the guns at Sangro River, Cassino, Florence and up the Adriatic coast to Trieste, occasionally taking a little time out to continue accountancy studies. Len kept a diary for 31 months, detailing military and other experiences in the land of his father's birth, a Kiwi-Italian in the midst of total war. His story is also that of a young husband separated from wife and family half a world away. The Author A lifetime interest in military history led Masterton-born author Neil Frances to write on these aspects of Wairarapa's past. On the Move Again is his sixth book published by Wairarapa Archive/Fraser Books. While previous volumes examined people, events and places, this new book is more personal, based on the diary of his father, a gunner in Italy during World War Two.
