Replacement Girl

£5.99

Product description

Nazi persecution, oppression behind the Iron Curtain, the struggle of strangers in a strange land. This sombre history haunts the adults in Ann Beaglehole's novel Replacement Girl while their children expand into the bright, wide open landscape of their adopted country.Set in fifties to seventies Wellington, Replacement Girl vividly brings the immigrant experience to life. The story moves back and forwards in time and between New Zealand and Budapest, as Eva grows up in a family struggling with the after-effects of earlier losses and adjustment to a new culture. Eva and her group of four friends, all immigrant children and 'different', have to make their own adjustments and choices to survive and thrive in 1950s Wellington. They just want to leave the parents' past behind and live the carefree life of their schoolmates.With sensitivity and humour, Ann Beaglehole takes the reader inside the immigrant experience so that we see mid-century New Zealand through their eyes. Replacement Girl explores the tensions between generations and cultures. It is a story of love, relationships and cross-cultural marriage.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
