During the Second World War, some three million people were evacuated from British towns and cities due to the danger of German air attacks. Most evacuees were children; many were sent to the countryside but some were sent to Canada, America, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Two of these children were 'Sarah', aged five, and her brother 'James', aged six, who were placed on a ship bound for New York City where they would be assigned to a foster home. A testimony to the resilience of the human spirit and the utter ingenuity of childhood, this heartbreaking tale explores the darker side of the British evacuation during the Second World War and is a testament to youthful resourcefulness and the will to survive
