It's 1939 and Isobel is visiting her grandmother, Polly, the housekeeper at crumbling Swallowcliffe Hall. Izzie's meant to be resting after a serious illness but with talk of war on everyone's lips, life is anything but peaceful, even deep in the English countryside. Izzie meets Andreas, a Jewish boy who has fled Nazi Germany on the Kindertransporte: the evacuation of thousands of Jewish children to safety in Britain. He's left his family behind and now they're in terrible danger. If war breaks out it will be too late for the Rosenfelds; can timid Izzie rise to the challenge and help them find sanctuary at the Hall too? Struggling to cope with prejudice all around and a devastating family tragedy, Isobel finally learns the truth behind a long-held secret in this heart-rending finale to the 'Swallowcliffe Hall' trilogy.

Extracts from contemporary letters and publications at the start of each chapter set the scene, while the accompanying author website provides a detailed historical background to the fictional events in the story - including personal testimonies from three of the original Kinder, unpublished photographs, and much more.
