When Britain declared war on Germany on September 3rd, 1939, six-year-old Cynthia Ehrenkrantz's idyllic childhood changed abruptly as her parents made every effort to keep her safe from Hitler's air raids.. Her book describes the six years of Word War 2 from a child's point of view: evacuation, rationing, the London Blitz, V-1 rocket attacks, and many more wartime experiences are vividly depicted in Seeking Shelter, her debut memoir. 
Cynthia Ehrenkrantz was raised in the London area of Great Britain and emigrated to the United States in 1957.   She began writing when she was eight years old - a story about a family of pins living between the floorboards of a dressmaker's shop. She has been writing ever since but began publishing more recently after raising three children and retiring from a successful career in the specialty food industry. She lives in White Plains NY where she is a member of Bet Am Shalom synagogue. She also performs her work at regional storytelling events and sings with the Yiddish Philharmonic Chorus. Seeking Shelter is her first published book.
