Le ciel croule by Kit Pearson( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in French and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Pendant la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, près de 15000 enfants anglais furent évacués dont 8000 au Canada. Norah et son petit frère Gavin furent de ceux-là. Si le garçonnet s'adapte bien à cette situation et à ses tantes d'occasion, il n'en va pas de même avec Norah. Ce roman, aux personnages bien campés, évoque avec réalisme des événements vécus. [SDM]
Du temps au bout des doigts by Kit Pearson( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in French and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Alors que ses parents sont en instance de divorce, Patricia va passer ses vacances à la campagne, chez sa tante. Elle découvre un monde auquel elle n'est pas familière et subit les moqueries de ses cousins. Une montre trouvée lui permet de remonter le temps et de découvrir sa mère à son âge. Malgré quelques défauts apparents comme la lenteur de la trame, sa complexité, l'évolution brutale des personnages, la longueur du texte, le récit tient en haleine et la dernière partie rachète la première. L'auteure effleure le divorce, mais s'attarde principalement aux relations humaines
