Far from the East End: The moving story of an evac&hellip by Iris Jones Simantel
5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
As one who was also evacuated from the "East End" on Sept 1 1939, I could fully understand the author's feelings. I was shipped off three times to a village in East Anglia. The third time I was very fortunate in finding a kindly loving foster mother whom I grew to love, & with whom I stayed in touch for the rest of her life. Being sent away from home as a child affects one for the rest of their life.
Iris has written a fine book, and I hope that it is knockout for her. Can't wait to read Volume two.
Well done Iris.
