The story of two English children evacuated from their home to live with strangers at the onset of World War II. A portion of the proceeds of the royalties of Let There Be Bluebirds will go towards leukemia research and to the families of those coping with leukemia.
From the Publisher
On a September morning in 1939 England, Jimmy Harding, aged 7, and his sister Jenny, 6, set out for school as usual. Jimmy knew that something was to happen that day, but his sister had no inkling that today their lives would be forever changed. Arriving at school, they were herded onto buses that took them far from their home in Portsmouth, into the English countryside. They were being 'evacuated'.
From then on they were moved from home to home, at first together and later apart. After becoming orphaned by a war neither child understood, they struggled to comprehend all that was happening to them, and why.
Poignant and moving, this is an unforgettable story and one no reader will want to put down.
