Then a telegram arrives from Willie's mother in London, and he must return to a world of despair and hate which he now remembers only in bad dreams. Weeks pass by; when Mr. Tom hears nothing from Willie, he fears for the boy's safety and he sets out for London, to look for the child he has come to regard as a son....
With unflinching honesty and a commanding voice, Michelle Magorian has written a first novel of rare insight. A powerful exploration of human emotion which is at once unsentimental and deeply moving, "Good Night, Mr. Tom "is a book which, once read, will not be forgotten.' A small, timid refugee from wartime London-- and from a sadistic mother-- and a lonely villager who has reluctantly accepted the child form a bond of love and trust that is deeply touching. Michelle Magorian has created a vivid cast for an Englishstory with universal and timeless appeal.' -- Zena Sutherland, IRA Children' s Book Award Chair. ' An engrossing, vividly detailed novel.' -- BL.
