World War II is smoldering in England. During these hard times, the Duke of Tyne struggles to keep his business interests alive in the United States. But he soon formulates a solution: he will send his son Wilfred and other family members to oversee the business in New York City. They will have to leave eleven-year-old Thomas William behind.
But Thomas William adjusts swiftly to living in the castle with his adoring grandparents, the Duke and Duchess of Tyne. He is the happiest kid in England. As World War II is in full swing, his days are busy and filled with activity as the castle becomes a safe haven for children in the south of England who are affected by the tumultuous fighting. Thomas William and his best friend, Martin Gibbon, provide a valuable service to these children and are bestowed knighthood for their efforts.
A work of historical fiction, The Accolade follows Thomas William, the eventual heir to the Dukedom of Tyne, from his childhood through early adulthood, as his social standing, hard work, and good luck consistently reward him and his best friend Martin.
