Topical addition to a long line of prestigious books, Tomorrow is a Stranger was published on the eightieth birthday of the author. Telling of the wartime invasion that destroyed tranquillity in the Channel Island of Guernsey, the day-to-day difficulties of living in Occupied Territory are given the breath of life as a back-cloth to Tessa and Paul's lives. Left behind after the evacuation, dramatic changes in their lives are not at first apparent but slowly, inevitably the frightening experience of war, only seen on the news reels, comes to school and home. Meticulously detailed research must make this the least painful of ways to learn about modern history. A vivid input into topics about World War II and no less as a riveting story of adventure, heroism, horror and growing awareness of political reality. You'll smell the Ovaltine and wince at the memory of mashed swede. Superb reading.
