When bombs fell over cities like Glasgow and London people would take refuge in shelters and tube stations until the all-clear signal sounded and 'normal' life resumed. Many years later Maurine remembered those times - the rationing, the evacuation, the fears and excitement of living as a child during the Second World War.
Taking up her pen she wrote about those historic days. These were stories that she could leave behind so that others would know what it was like and the real secret of how they survived during those troublesome days. This will serve as a useful insight for children into World War II from a Christian perspective.

"These stories are told vividly and engagingly so that our attention is held throughout. Part of each story is a spiritual application arising naturally and helpfully from what Maurine has related. She then gives us a biblical reference which is well worth looking up to see the truth in Scripture which has been shown in the story."

"Here is a splendid read for both young and old! It combines the story of a memorable childhood with sure guidance for a joyful and useful life. The many who admired Maurine Murchison (1935-2008) will recognize her portrait of the 'War Child', and those who did not know her will value meeting her in these charming pages."
