THE ONLY BLUE DOOR
When a bomb destroys their home during the Blitz, three children are left wandering the streets of London. Mistaken as orphans they are sent to Australia as child migrants, far from everyone they know.
Based on the experiences of real people, this novel reflects the attitudes of the day towards child migration during and after the Second World War.
Amazon review: "Joan Fallon deftly evokes all of the pathos of war and displacement and their effects on human beings. This is one of the finest war stories I have read."
