Note: 
During World War II, German-Jewish refugee children Rochel and Daniel are sent to the village of Burroclough, outside of Liverpool, for their safety as English cities come under attack. They are taken in by stern, moody Miss Darwen, who grudgingly allows them to continue their Jewish observances. Mystery and secrets surround Miss Darwen’s old house, and she goes out nightly, leaving the children alone. It turns out that Miss Darwin and her brother are anti-Semitic spies, saboteurs, and traitors. Rochel wants to please Miss Darwen and is afraid of her, but in the end she is the one who discovers and reveals their evil deeds. Suspenseful but wordy, with minimal Jewish content. Background information and a timeline are included.
