  • Regular price £15.00

Barbara Noble writes with great insight about the mind of a child torn between her mother, whom she leaves behind in London during the Blitz, and the couple who take her in. Everyone wants only the best for Doreen yet, in the end, what is being explored is a clash of values: those looking after her will eventually realise that Doreen will go back 'to a world where most of the things you've taught her will be drawbacks rather than advantages.'
