Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The fall of Singapore, dreadful ... the hellish journey back to England. Two girls get out, their parents and the older one's fiancé do not ... yet. The girls seek their aunt, find sanctuary in Peggy's wonderful boarding house, Beach View, and must now find jobs. How these privileged girls cope is beautifully portrayed, made me actually realise that this time in our history was the real birth of women's lib! Full of period detail, masses of incidents and drama. This is a lovely tale.
