Description

For American Claire Stewart, joining the French Resistance sounded as romantic as the storylines she hopes will one day grace the novels she wants to write. But when she finds herself stranded on English shores, with five French Jewish children she smuggled across the channel before Nazis stormed Paris, reality feels more akin to fear.
With nowhere to go, Claire throws herself on the mercy of an estranged aunt, begging Lady Miranda Langford to take the children into her magnificent estate. Heavily weighted with grief of her own, Miranda reluctantly agrees . . . if Claire will stay to help. Though desperate to return to France and the man she loves, Claire has few options. But her tumultuous upbringing—spent in the refuge of novels with fictional friends—has ill-prepared her for the daily dramas of raising children, or for the way David Campbell, a fellow American boarder, challenges her notions of love. Nor could she foresee how the tentacles of war will invade their quiet haven, threatening all who have come to call Bluebell Wood home and risking the only family she's ever known.
Set in England's lush and storied Lake District in the early days of World War II, and featuring cameos from beloved literary icons Beatrix Potter and C. S. Lewis, Until We Find Home is an unforgettable portrait of life on the British home front, challenging us to remember that bravery and family come in many forms.

        Starred review from November 1, 2017

        American Claire Stewart quickly realizes her romantic notions of working for the French Resistance bear no resemblance to the reality of World War II. After rescuing five French Jewish children and smuggling them across the English Channel, she begs her estranged aunt, Lady Miranda Langford, to take in the refugees at her estate. Lady Miranda agrees, but only if Claire helps care for them. Claire's desire to return to France and a relationship she has there is at odds with her attraction to fellow American David Campbell, another boarder at the estate. Claire must stay if the children are to remain safe. But safety is an illusion and danger is closer than she realizes. VERDICT Based on the author's own interviews with Holocaust survivors and the gentiles who risked their own lives to rescue them, Christy Award winner Gohlke's (Secrets She Kept) powerful historical novel features a suspenseful and heart-wrenching plot and unforgettable characters.
