Life on the islands during the five years under the Jackboot was hard and freedoms severely curtailed, but the spirit of a young Guernsey boy called Tom Le Breton was never dampened. This is the story of a dramatic wartime rescue and the romance that grew between Tom and a young Jewish girl imprisoned on the nearby island of Alderney. The story moves from those dangerous but somehow magical days to the heady 1970's when long-since forgotten events return to haunt a small family now settled on the Western coast of Guernsey. Impregnated with the atmosphere of remote islands and their unique history, Rachel's Shoe is an adventure story about the survival of innocence in a world dominated by obsessions for power and wealth.
