The Yellow Duster Sisters A Wartime Childhood Paperback Kennaway Susan
1939. Nine year old Susie and her sister Gyll live in Watford, and all week look forward to their Saturday shopping expedition to Woolworths with their nanny, to buy something nice for Mummy. But as war breaks out in Europe, the girls are evacuated to Africa. Feeling abandoned and alone, the sisters find their new life miserable and get no sympathy from their guardians, who force them to wear patched-up clothes and be in bed by six o'clock.
