One extraordinary dog, a family in peril and a country turned upside-down by war. Can Bertie reunite everyone before it's too late? Stranded in a war-torn London, pampered Bertie is cold, alone and scared. Now that his owner has passed away he has to learn the ways of a stray dog on the streets. Luckily he has the help of his new friends in the community, both those on two legs and on four. But Bertie doesn't expect the Blitz and the horror it brings, or how some Londoners might start to resent pets in such difficult times. He also doesn't expect to find love again in the arms of one special little boy. When his second chance of happiness is threatened Bertie knows he needs to do whatever he can to protect it, no matter what dangers lie in his path. With bombs raining down on London streets, can this small dog with the big heart help the ones he loves before it's too late?

Libby Parker grew up in the countryside in Somerset surrounded by animals of all varieties. She has been, and always will be, an animal lover, so when she began to write she knew that they would play a central role in her fiction. Libby still lives in Somerset with her husband, 2 children, 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 alpacas and the rest of the menagerie. Bertie the Blitz Dog is her first novel and she is working on her second.
