The good book for all the Cornish Jews to read; there will be people you know and people you wish you had known. Susan Soyinka's book covers the war years (WWII) when Jews were evacuated from the Jews Free School in London, to Mousehole, Cornwall. Their experiences are told with poignancy from a woman who has spent a large part of her life in Mousehole and whose personal interest in telling this story grew into a book which not only documents much unknown Jewish history, but also illustrates what it was like to live in the West country some 70 years ago.
