Inhaltsangabe: Isobel comes to crumbling Swallowcliffe Hall with her gas mask in 1939, to stay with her grandmother Polly. Rumours of war are everywhere and it's an anxious time, especially for Andreas, a Jewish boy Izzie meets in the village. He has fled Nazi Germany on the Kindertransporte: the evacuation of thousands of Jewish children to safety in Britain. He's left his family behind and now they're in terrible danger. Can Izzie help them find sanctuary at the Hall too? In the face of prejudice all around, she finally uncovers the truth behind a devastating family secret in this heart-rending story of love and loss. NOTE: This story was first published under the title, 'Shelter from the Storm'.
Über den Autor: Jennie Walters has had over twenty books published for children and teens, including the popular Party Girls series. She was partly inspired to write the ?Swallowcliffe Hall? stories by visits to beautiful old English country houses, including Kingston Lacey in Dorset, Belton House in Lincolnshire and Castle Howard in Yorkshire. When younger, she spent two years in a cliff-top boarding school converted from a Victorian mansion with wood-panelled rooms, a huge marble staircase and one of the largest collections of stuffed birds in England. Finding a silver housekeeper?s châtelaine while clearing out her father-in-law?s flat whetted her interest in Victorian servants and their masters and mistresses, and prompted her to create a fictional country house of her own. Jennie lives in London with her husband and a dog, and has two grown-up sons. For a fascinating insight into the world of English country houses and the families and servants who live in them, visit Jennie?s website, packed with original photographs, historical information, extracts from servants? letters, and much more! www.jenniewalters.com
