Goodbye East EndLarge Print - 2016
As Hitler's bombs threatened London during the Second World War, eight-year-old David Merron was evacuated from his family and the close-knit Jewish community in the East End to the safety of the English countryside. Placed in the care of strangers, this new life was sometimes unpredictable and lonely. But, with time, the great outdoors became an exciting adventure playground in which he flourished. Set against a dramatic wartime backdrop, this is the story of a conflict between a boy's unexpected love of the countryside and his guilt about not missing home as much as he might, and of the childhood experiences that changed his life forever.
