Children of the Siege Summary

Children of the Siege by Diney Costeloe

Heart-stopping and gripping, this classic Diney Costeloe story shows the courage of one family in the face of great danger.

Nineteenth-century Paris is in flames, houses ransacked, streets barricaded. Most people are fleeing the ravaged city, but the St Clair family have made a fateful decision - to return to Paris from their house in the country.

As the horrors of the Commune and the ensuring siege engulf the St Clairs, little Helene falls ill and becomes separated from the family. Lost and alone, she must fend for herself on the war-torn streets.
