In Spite of All Terror

£9.99

Product description

Ex-school library stock with corresponding stampings on inside cover. Jacket is slightly folded at the top but does not affect integrity of illustration underneath.

In the autumn of 1939 most of the schoolchildren of the East End of London were being evacuated in their thousands to the safety of the English countryside. Liz Hawtin, who had suffered for years from being an unwelcome addition to her Aunt Ag's family, is one fifteen year old who relishes the prospect of a new start with new people and fresh surroundings. Fitting in with the Bruton family proves not to be so easy. However, as they share the common griefs and worries of the war Liz and the family grow gradually closer together. Liz discovers within herself a new person, a girl of courage and adventure that she had never suspected existed.

Illustrated by the talented Victor Ambrus.
