While we were in central London, last week, we walked around to the side of the National Portrait Gallery to see the statue of Edith Cavell.
My knowledge of Edith Cavell was minimal so it was good to find out more and a little about her faith. The book is a fictionalised biography so I was a bit disappointed to discover that one quite amusing scene which appeared to be pivotal to her faith didn't actually happen. That aside, I enjoyed finding out more about this brave and determined lady who was also a talented artist, fund raiser for a Sunday School and governess plus being fluent in French.
This book is suitable for older children probably 10+ and would fit in well with learning about the First World War.
