Hi, I am looking for a book I read to my kids and now they have kids and want to read this book to them..but we cannot remember the name of the book. I is about the kids in London being sent to the country durning the bombing. These kids are sent to a manor house that has a hedge maze in the garden and at the center of the maze is a cottage with a good witch who teaches them crafts and things to help keep their minds off of home-sickness. Of course there are other strange things also. Can you help me??
