Allingham, the author of the Albert Campion crime novels, tells this story of her small English village during WWII. Tracey Lloyd narrates the story in the form of a letter to an American couple who asked Allingham what it was like for small villages that were asked to provide a home for the onslaught of evacuees from London. Lloyd's style matches the writing--direct and straightforward. She narrates clearly and distinctly with a sensitivity for the author's concerns about exposing the stresses and tensions her village faced, and the variety of coping mechanisms. A bit brighter sound would have been helpful for listening in the car (although it was adequate with a bit of tonal adjustment), but this was less of a problem with a portable player J.E.M. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
