really liked it
Read in May, 2012

An easy compelling read. My father is from the island and was evacuated along with most of the other children in 1940. He was too young to remember a lot of it so this was really interesting for me to understand the day to day lives of those who remained - including my grandfather who was a bank manager on the island. Some really sad parts, very moving, but the ending annoyed me. The letter format worked most of the way through but by the end was a bit superfluous.
