A new book. All copies received from printer with very light edgewear and faint horizontal ripples on spines. ; This novel was written in 1940, near the beginning of World War II. It is set in England before, and just after, the start of World War II. In 1938 Franz von Heiden, son of a Nazi official and an Englishwoman who died when he was a child, comes to England to visit his English cousins. Life in England is not what he expected, and he reports this to his father back in Germany. Completed on 29 February, 1940, before the US had entered the war, DES hoped this book would explain the British attitude to the war to her American readers.
