At the start of World War II, Jack and Sadie Rosenblum flee Berlin for London with their baby daughter, Elizabeth. Upon arrival, Jack receives a pamphlet from the German Jewish Aid Committee on how to act like a proper Englishman. He follows it to the letter—Saville Row suits, the BBC, trips to Covent Garden, a Jaguar—and it works like a charm. The Rosenblums settle into a prosperous new life.

Just one item on the list eludes him: “An Englishman must be a member of a golf course.” No golf course in England at the time will admit a Jew. But the list is now the guiding document in Jack’s life, and he must check off the final item. So he decides to build his own golf club in the Dorset countryside. For the second time, Sadie leaves a home she loves. And despite ancient customs, British snobbery, mythical beasts, and a shrinking bank account, they triumph once again.

    " If I could give this book 2 1/2 stars that is about right. I liked it at times but had some difficulty liking this husband and wife at first. Curtis was a hoot and the best part of the book. In the end I loved the fact that optimism prevails. We all could use a little more of it. "

    " Such a lovely novel - a real pleasure to read. The hero, Jack Rosenblum, is a Jewish refugee who, after setting up a successful business in London, decides to moves to Dorset to set up home there. Both Jack and Sadie are so charming and their relationship with each other and those they meet so believable, it's impossible not to love them and to hope Jack's crazy plans to open a golf course work out. The descriptions of their hopes and fears as they build a new life in England are very poignant and also laugh out laugh funny at times - definitely one to recommend. "

    " Only finished one third. The same point repeated over and over: you can't assimilate by doing homework; there is no ONE national identity. It's farsical and the (anti)hero is so annoying, I caught myself hoping his wife woyld bump him off. If there are unexpected and surprising developements around the corner, please let me know and I,ll finish the book and, perhaps, change my rating. "
