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.



Reviews

I loved this book and its hero---a WWII refugee from London to Santa Fe, NM, Beatrice is a first-rate narrator for a non-stop adventure that includes dogs, Japanese internees, spies and more. This wonderful, uplifting novel will delight young readers and their parents.
--Anne Hillerman, author of Joe Leaphorn, Jim Chee, Bernadette Manuelito mystery series.
Four young teens from different backgrounds are thrown together in their small, seemingly sheltered corner of the world­-Santa Fe, New Mexico-in this fine coming of age story. -Randall Platt, author of The Likes of Me and Honor Bright
