Memorable scenes of a city at war filtered through a child’s eyes, to be thrown into sharp relief by the sheer joy of this young evacuee’s brief spell of country life in Cornwall. The book ends with an early-teenage lad stepping back from the victory celebrations of 1945 to philosophise about what the post-war future might hold. 235mm x 150mm 168 pp black & white photographs ISBN 1 900178 34 6 softback
