7 Reviews
Alcock explores a contemporary issue: the plight of a child who is a refugee in an alien society. And as four children try to provide a safe haven for this stranger in a strange land, they begin to understand their own strengths as well as their limitations. Stranger at the Window contains the elements that are the hallmark of Vivien Alcock's books - a strong plot, a determined heroine, and a beautiful command of the English language. "Childhood is," Alcock has written, "an exciting and dangerous time, and it fascinates me." Her books reflect that excitement, danger, and fascination.
