Very good book on how difficult it was for WWII child evacuees sent overseas to the US to get back into the routine as English citizens after the war ended, and they were sent (against their will) back to England. I had no idea of the abuse endured at the hands of their own countrymen. The heroine in this book has been completely Americanized. She has an American accent, and because of the American public school teachings, has no idea or concept of her English roots. Sent to a boarding school, she is ostracized by her class mates and teachers because of her lack of English knowledge and training. Highly recommend, especially for children.
