The Oceans Between Us (by Gill Thompson) … slowly moving story

This WWII historical fiction book was a different focus. Children are sent from England to Australia when the orphanages are full and cannot accommodate additional children … whether they are orphans or their parents have put them in care until they can retrieve them later. The boys are expected to work hard and they are abused in horrendous ways. While the story will touch your heart. It moved slowly and I found it difficult to stay focused.

Thank you to NetGalley and Headline for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
