Jane and Henry—A World War II Adventure

By Rebecca Borger
Level 5

When the threat of World War II presses against England, Jane and Henry must evacuate from London to the countryside. As they step from the platform and their mother’s loving embrace onto the train that will take them far away into an unknown future, the children hope they will stay together and bravely face whatever awaits them. Finding themselves at Orchard Glen Farm, Jane and Henry learn much more than just what it means to live in a place so different from London; they encounter God’s love and find the strength to face their deepest fears.
