The true story of an evacuee and her family. In June 1940, ten-year-old Pam Hobbs took the long journey from her council home in Leigh-on-Sea to faraway rural Derbyshire. In some foster homes Pam found a second family, with babies to look after, car rides and picnics, but other billets took a more sinister turn, as the adults found it easy to exploit the children in their care. Returning home, the war was far from over. Making do with rations, dodging bombs and helping with the war effort, it was a time that was full of overwhelming hardship and devastation; yet also of kindness and humour, resilience and courage.
