Beatrice On Her Own is the sequel to Rosemary’s award-winning novel, True Brit, which features Beatrice Simms, a young English girl sent to live in Santa Fe, New Mexico to escape the bombing of London during World War II. In the second book, the news of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor hits Santa Fe and soon Beatrice’s life is changed again. Her host Clem is called to Washington to train nurses and Beatrice moves in with her best friend and her eccentric family. Struggling with a new home life, Beatrice makes friends with a new boy in school, and works with him on a project to enlist dogs for the war effort. When a Japanese Internment Camp is built in Santa Fe, Beatrice must decide if she has the “gumption” needed to face the new challenges facing everyone.
