A Harvest of Friendships
AVAILABLE NOW, FREE SHIPPING (continental USA only): A Harvest of Friendships is the remarkable story of the deep and lasting friendships that were born out of an extraordinary situation in an era unlike any other. During WWII, thousands of British parents evacuated their children to the United States in order to keep them safe. How did these British children cope with years of separation from their families? How did American host families manage? These children experienced an untold variety of family situations and were given an insider’s glimpse into wartime American home life and attitudes.
The author has corresponded with or met hundreds of evacuees and many have shared with him their experiences and their precious photographs for the first time. A Harvest of Friendships provides a compelling picture of a little-known side of World War II.
