When the War Is Over Far from home, far from family, safe from the war - a true story of two Second World War evacuees

by Barbara Fox

When the War Is Over Far from home, far from family, safe from the war - a true story of two Second World War evacuees Synopsis

THE TOUCHING TRUE STORY OF TWO SECOND WORLD WAR EVACUEES Gwenda and Douglas Brady were among the millions of British children sent to live with new families for their own safety during the Second World War, leaving behind their parents, their friends and all that felt familiar and safe. Evacuation could be a scary experience, but five-year-old Gwenda and her brother were lucky enough to be housed with a kindly schoolmaster and his wife, and soon the realities of the war felt very far away. When the War is Over touchingly tells the story of how Gwenda and Doug found a second family and a loving home in the remote Lake District village of Bampton . . . and how the war touched the lives of everyone, even those far, far away from the big cities. Readers love When the War is Over: 'One of the very best books I have ever read without a doubt . . . In a similar genre to Goodnight Mister Tom. Highly recommended' 'A riveting read' 'I enjoyed the style of writing and all the people really came to life' 'True stories of life and very entertaining' 'A well written and intimate record of what it was like as a young child being evacuated in WWII'
