108. The Small Party by Lillian Beckwith

This novel is quite a departure from Beckwith's other books. Ruth and her three young children awake one night to find that their town is being bombed. As they scramble to escape, they find out that a rebel group is fighting to take over their island. They encounter desperate refugees, police roadblocks, helpful strangers  and tragedy as they make their way to safety in the countryside.
