Summary
At the start of World War 2, when Hitler's bombs threatened to rain down hell, eight-year-old David Merron was taken from the heart of his close-knit Jewish community in London's East End and evacuated to the safety of the English countryside. Transplanted into an alien world, adrift from his nurturing family and at the mercy of strangers, life was frightening and lonely. The strangeness of this new existence - its religious and cultural shifts - left David confused and questioning not only his faith but his very sense of self. David's moving memoir is about a small boy's burgeoning love of the countryside and the confusion he felt about missing - and yet not missing - home. Set against a wartime backdrop of flaming skies and pluming black smoke, it is a celebration of the wonder and tranquillity of the natural world that changed the shape of David's life
