Overview

Good Night, Mr. Tom is a sensitive but unsentimental story of an abused small boy and an elderly man who takes him in as an evacuee during World War II.

The gradual development of their mutual love makes for an engrossing story that holds the reader's interest.

Well-drawn characters and vivid descriptions of a World War II English village bring the narrative to life. The accurate historical background serves as an integral part of the story.

The writer involves the reader from the first page as, step by step, Willie develops from a terrified, abused child into a self-confident and talented human being through the aid of the gruff but patient Mr. Tom, other children, and adult friends. Willie's unforgettable story looks optimistically at the potential of patience, courage, and love to change things for the better.
