The House at Tyneford by Natasha Solomons is based on real events that happened in the Second World War. A young Jewish Austrian girl is sent to live in England to escape the unfolding terrors in Vienna. The book is about the struggles she and her family face, and through them, shows how the war upended individual lives and society in general. It is beautifully written and deeply felt.
