This is the diary of a volunteer American in France, one of Anne Morgan's directors and assistants, frank, feminine, personal -- and very readable. Mrs. Hughes there, before long called upon to give shelter and sustenance to the stream of Belgian refugees precipitated by the invasion. The fall of France, and another center at , where she and a few others stay on -- more tired then afraid -- and after the continue giving many kinds of aid. Her chapters on the neighboring prison camp, and her ruses in outwitting the German officers to help out the prisoners form some of the nicest in the book. A human, inside story.
