The pair make a life together in England before the savagery of war forces Emil, viewed as an enemy alien, away from Hannah into internment. Determined to find him, Hannah prepares herself for a lonely and dangerous journey across the ocean...Hannah & Emil is the third novel from Vogel Winning author Belinda Castles.
