Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
Set in England in 1941, this sequel to No Friend of Mine, focuses on the youngest Dyer, Doreen, and an evacuee, Rhoda, who comes to live with them. Because the war has taken her father, devastated her homeland and changed the direction of her life, Doreen doesn't feel able to survive any further upheaval-like sharing her room. The road to friendship is battered with bombs, cold war and distrust.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-The opposite lives of two youngsters in the mining town of Culverton, England, are depicted in this story of friendship, trust, and betrayal. Lennie, a miner's son, is the brunt of teasing and physical torment by the school bully. Ralph, the mine owner's son, is in need of friendship when he is home from boarding school. Poor boy and rich boy meet in an old abandoned cottage behind the owner's house and decide to turn it into a hideout. Each is aware of the other's differences but is willing to ignore them for the sake of the relationship. In turn, each boy's concept of loyalty is tested when Lennie is falsely accused of stealing from the owner's house. Ralph cannot overcome his fear of his father and hides behind the accusation. The classic theme of distrust between the classes is portrayed in this pre-World War II British novel along with the conflict of union v. management. Turnbull doesn't offer any real solutions; she leaves readers wondering if the two boys will ever truly understand or communicate with one another. A thought-provoking and realistic read.-Rita Soltan, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI
Hazel Rochman
Bullied at school, and with no space of his own in his poor home in England during the Depression, Lennie finds a friend, Ralph, in a ruined cottage in the woods. Ralph's father is the rich, harsh boss who runs the coal mines; Lennie's father is sick from the coal dust, and his family is staunchly labor. The boys find friendship despite their class differences, but then Lennie is accused of stealing from the big house, and Ralph betrays him. Like Turnbull's "Speedwell" (1992), about Lennie's sister, this fine historical novel evokes the time and place with spare detail. The class conflict is a burning reality, especially as it shows the gap between the poverty of the workers and the luxury of the owners; just as strong is the personal struggle with friends and enemies".
