Goodnight Mr Tom

This wonderfully uplifting tale opens during the dangerous build up to the Second World War and follows young William Beech who is evacuated from London to a rural village. He is placed with an elderly recluse, Tom Oakley who takes him on reluctantly but subsequently forges a remarkable and heart warming friendship.. This is cruelly interrupted when he is summoned back to London by his mother and a potential disaster for William leads to Tom Oakley braving the blitz to try to rescue William.
