Goodbye East End - David Merron

Paperback - Very Good Condition


As Hitler’s bombs threatened London during the Second World War, eight-year-old David Merron was evacuated from his family and the close-knit Jewish community in the East End to the safety of the English countryside.

Placed into the care of strangers, this new life was sometimes unpredictable and lonely. But, with time, the great outdoors became an exciting adventure playground in which he flourished.

Set against a dramatic wartime backdrop, Goodbye East End is about the conflict between a boy’s unexpected love of the countryside and his guilt about not missing home as much as he might. It tells the moving story of a childhood experience that changed a young boy’s life forever.
