A Riveting Read Aug 1, 2002
This book takes you back to Arthur's life when he was 8 years old and evacuated from London to the country for his safety in World War 2. It has many highs and lows and you wonder how any of the evacuess coped with such a drastic change in their young lives. It is thoroughly captivating to see how he survives his new school, religion and way of life. A story which should be told to all and every generation.
