    2. Based loosely on the author s childhood experience of the evacuation of children from Britain to the Common Wealth countries A fast paced story which includes a U boat attack on the ship the children are on Sara is under the care of an overbearing woman, Lady Drume, who is taking her to stay with her Aunt and Uncle in BC Some of the children on the ship contract measles presenting an opportunity to discuss the advances in medicine and the life saving benefits of immunizations Sara s journey coul [...]


    3. This is a book I really loved as a kid, but upon re reading it as an adult, it wasn t so good I think I probably chose it from a book catalog in the late 70s early 80s I m sure because our fourth grade teacher had read aloud Escape From Warsaw and Searching for Shona, both World War II stories, and I probably wanted to read another one I don t know about Searching for Shona I haven t read it in 35 years but Escape From Warsaw also known as The Silver Sword is a much, much better book I re read i [...]


    4. A beautifully written story of a young girl, Sara, who must make the journey by sea to Canada during World War II The woman charged with her keep is at times infuriating Sara meets two friends in Ernie and Maggie, a brother and sister also bound for Canada Ms Garrigue writes from a genuine perspective In fact, I don t think anyone could have written Sara s story as well Ms Garrigue was an evacuee during World War II Later in life, she was administrative assistant to Edward R Murrow I would recom [...]


    5. English evacuee sent to Canada in 1940 Most of the action takes place on the boat trip Interesting class differences between the main character, I think a middle class girl, and the other children on board, who are Cockneys.A pretty good book I hadn t read it in a long time, and I liked it better when I was a kid I think the story is probably pretty autobiographical, and could have stood some plotting, or something You spend the book very much in the main character s head but her character is w [...]


    6. Read this in 5th grade This was the book that got me to read again after a long dry spell It will always hold a special place in my heart.



    7. Needs action It seemed as if many of the incidents that happened could have been developed Just as I was getting into them, they ended.
