During the course of the Second World War, millions of British children were moved to the countryside and overseas to escape the bombing attacks on cities. Many appalling mis-matches took place, both social and religious, and many children were greatly affected by the upheaval. The author, an evacuee herself, interviews scores of evacuees (many now famous) about this traumatic experience in an attempt to answer the issues raised. Ruth Inglis has written a number of books on child-parent relationships, including "A Time to Learn", "Sins of the Fathers", "Must Divorce Hurt the Children?" and "The Good Step-Parents Guide".
