Read full description of the books:
I was really looking forward to reading this book as its the first I have read on the subject of evacuees. I was left a little disappointed as it was very repetitive throughout the book. The stories were all very similar and without the anecdotal detail that I was hoping for. I would like to have known more detail about the evacuees experiences rather than reading the same summing up of each evacuees experience. It just felt a bit lazy. I still enjoyed the book, just would have liked to know more about the detail of their billets.

Read information about the authorI was born near Liverpool and grew up first on the Wirral and then in Cheshire. Although the greater part of my childhood was spent outside pursuing any number of outdoor activities, I have always wanted to be a writer.
I am passionate about writing and unembarrassed to be so. I love researching my books, especially when they involve meeting people and finding out about their lives. I have a little study in the attic of our house with one of the best views in Oxford – the dreaming spires seen from Iffley. I write in the mornings after the children have gone to school and find the problem is not sticking to the routine but tearing myself away from writing at the end of the day. I describe myself as a biographer and historian but the most important thing for me is to be a story teller.
