Our uninvited guests: the secret lives of Britain's country houses 1939-1945

Summers, Julie, author

'Our Uninvited Guests' perfectly captures the period of the Blitz during the Second World War when thousands of families were faced with the heart-wrenching decision to leave all they knew behind, in order to forge a new life where Hitler's Luftwaffe could not reach them. Renowned social historian Julie Summers searches out the best voices from the past who convey the many problems these families faced during the early years of the conflict; where they were sent around the British Isles to live in safety; and what problems and social stigmas they overcame when dropped into parts of the country that at any other time would have seemed foreign to them
