Room for a Stranger

By Ann Turnbull

A new arrival quickly becomes a rival, with potentially tragic consequences, in this evocative wartime novel.

When her older sisters leave home, Doreen gets a room of her own – at last! But it’s 1941, the cities are threatened by Nazi air raids and, to Doreen's dismay, Mum has decided to take in an evacuee. Rhoda Kelly is a year older than Doreen, has a boyfriend in the Army and, worse still, is a talented singer. Forced to share a room – and the limelight – tensions grow between the two girls, erupting finally into bitter conflict … with potentially tragic consequences.
