It's 1943 and WW II is raging. To escape the Blitz, 10 yr old Wesley and 14 yr old Charles were evacuated from England. After a treacherous ocean crossing, they arrive in America and are staying with the large and rowdy Ratcliff family on their farm near Richmond, Virginia. Suffering from both culture shock and the trauma of traveling across the U-boat-infested Atlantic, the brothers search for ways to adjust to the rural South, get the hang of American slang, and deal with being cut off from their parents. Author L. M. Elliott brings to light this meticulously-researched story of World War II on U.S. soil.
