Summary"A Rough Crossing takes us on a journey back in time to the summer of 1940 when British parents would accept offers from families in the Dominions and the United States to take their children for the duration of the war. Eight evacuees, now fifty years on, recall the day they said goodbye to their parents and boarded ships which would chart a course through the dangerous waters of the Atlantic... journey into the past with Tish, Don, Dorothy, Ann, Maggie, John, Martin and Dennis as they share memories of their departure from England, arrival into Canada and time spent with Canadian families." —Container
