Setting

Good Night, Mr. Tom takes place between 1939 and 1941, during World War II, when children were evacuated from London to escape the German "blitzkrieg" bombardment. When Willie Beech is evacuated, his mentally ill, fanatical mother stipulates that he must live beside a church. Thus, Willie ends up in the rural English village of Little Weirwold, where he lives in Mr. Tom Oakley's stone cottage adjoining a cemetery and a church. Other locales include London, where a climactic scene occurs, and the seaside fishing village of Salmouth, where the protagonists spend an idyllic two weeks near the book's end.
