about

It is the summer of 1940 and in Europe the time of Blitzkrieg. John Howard, a 70-year-old Englishman vacationing in France, cuts shorts his tour and heads for home. He agrees to take two children with him.

But war closes in. Trains fail, roads clog with refugees. And if things were not difficult enough, other children join in Howard's little band. At last they reach the coast and find not deliverance but desperation. The old Englishman's greatest test lies ahead of him.


"Mr Shute not only writes vividly and excitingly of occupied France, but with a delightful understanding of children" — Sunday Times
"A small masterpiece...a book about frail but indomitable old age, simple kindness, childhood, and courage in dark confusing danger. It is not sentimental but prosaic and suspenseful on every page...it conjures up the country of the 1940's, and gently acclaims the value of ordinary decency in wicked times" — Libby Purves
"A brilliantly descriptive writer, a master of suspense" -- David Holloway
"Exhibits his talents at their provocative best" — New York Times
"That shattering, unaffected, literary style of his is wholly deceptive...is, in fact, masterly" — H.E. Bates
