Sent away from Berlin in the Thirties to escape the horrors that are to come, Leo is fostered with an eccentric couple in London.

He works hard to fit into his new surroundings, and wins a place at Oxford where he falls in love with the self-confident, very English Eleanor. Then the war comes, and with it a wave of xenophobic feeling. To his shock and horror, Leo finds himself classed as an enemy alien and flung onto a ship destined for the other side of the world...The Sandbeetle is at once a richly detailed, gripping portrait of one mans struggle for identity, and a powerful exploration of the nature of belonging: to a country, a family, a race, a religious tradition - to humanity.
