Poppy doesn't feel that the army are doing enough to get her husband back and decides to take matters into her own hands by going to Afghanistan and getting her man back. A long the way you get to know and meet Poppy's family the most important and influential person being her grandmother Dorothea, who has always encouraged and supported her grand-daughter whilst her own daughter Cheryl fails. Poppy Day is a compelling story of life in the East end of London and of one young girls fight for justice. A great first novel.
