The Herivels Look out Over the Little Town of St Anne's

The Herivels Look out Over the Little Town of St Anne's, Now Silent and Deserted.

There is an eerie desolation in the streets, a desolation not of ruin but of emptiness - empty houses, empty shops, empty churches, with here and there a German prisoner standing by.

but soon there will be bustle and movement, for over a thousand islanders are moving into their homes.
