Having fled the dreadful blitz in London and landed in sunny Santa Fe, New Mexico, Beatrice Agatha Sims has learned to appreciate
a radically different culture and landscape. Her world is rocked again with news of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. First she must
contend with losing her American host, the sensible “Clem” - a public health nurse called to Washington to train other nurses. Then
the 13-year-old girl must draw on her own experience of being a stranger in a strange land to battle local fears and prejudice when a
Japanese Internment Camp is constructed on the edge of town. And will Beatrice have the ‘gumption’ required to face the challenges the
war is bringing to everyone?
A stand-alone novel and sequel to the very popular, award-winning TRUE BRIT: Beatrice, 1940 about an English girl fleeing the Blitz and landing in
America, based on true accounts.
