When the Blitz ended, the families came for their kids, but no one ever came for Simon Thorn. His name appears on no evacuation list, and none of his belongings offer any clues to his origins. Now an adult, Simon is puzzled by an odd sense of familiarity when he walks down certain London streets. He remembers years of screaming nightmares that would terrify his bewildered foster parents. And he resolves to find out where he originally came from, even as everything he uncovers suggests that, really, he doesn't want to know.

    One of Barnard's Best!

    ¿¿Don¿t kill her! Don¿t!¿ The young Simon wakes up screaming! The gentle couple who have taken Simon in are more than a little confused. In Robert Barnard¿s ¿Out of the Blackout,¿ the author sets this finely-tuned and suspenseful novel during the blizt of London during the War. Children have been evacuated to the countryside for their own safety, more often than not to live for the duration of the war with complete strangers. Young Simon Thorn shows up in the village of Yeasdon, along with the other evacuated children. However, his name is on on list, his address doesn¿t exist, and few clues can be found in the few items he possesses. Many questions abound and Barnard, with his accustomed patience and logical thinking, sets out to solve this mystery. He does so in a touching, poignant manner, and he brings vividly to life all the aspects of these dark and dangerous days of the blitz. Barnard deserves his well-earned reputation.

    ABSORBING

    This is an excellent mystery but it is less a whodunit than a who-am-I since the bulk of the mystery investigation is by a grown child trying to discover a past that he has blocked and forgotten.
