Publisher's Summary

When Pee Wee Poston and his wife, Beulah, are offered the chance to swap New York for London, they jump at the opportunity. But life for a black family in inter-war London isn't easy. And when the Nazi bombs arrive, life gets tougher still.

Critic Reviews

"No one in this working-class London neighborhood has ever seen a black person, but when the American Embassy worker and his family move in, their next-door neighbors soon embrace them as fast friends....Rowena Cooper imparts sensitive and well-thought-out voices to the many British characters in this expansive story."
