I loved this book from first chapter to last words. Thoroughly researched and beautifully written, the book takes the reader on a spirited tale of survival and hope. The daring evacuation of 70 British children facing the dangers of enemy torpedoes, plus the harrowing ocean journey of a crowded lifeboat, sounds dark and grim. Yet the story is uplifting and joyous. I will recommend this book highly.
Tom Nagorski's book is not only an exceptionally riveting story of survival at sea and the strength of the human spirit, but his writing style lends a reader to forget they are reading a book. I was transported into the story. I felt like I was part of their journey. He was descriptive without being overly so, and his portrayal of the human emotion thorough enough to allow me an almost first-hand, vicarious experience.
