'Saplings by Noel Streatfeild is a stufy of the impact on a happy middle-class family as they try to cope during the Second World War. Streatfeild's undestanding of childhoos psychology is incredibly modern and she's inflinching in presenting the domestic unhappiness that becomes normal for her characters. It's the children that make this such an engaging story and one where war-time Britain is very real and immediate. Bleak at times, shocking at others, it left me jolted and impressed.'
