Format: Paperback
How to describe this wonderful little book. First of all I picked it up and browsed through it looking at the pictures of Barbie and her family, then the book fell open at chapter two, I started reading about the road that Barbie lived in as a child, the neighbours, the community spirit, her friends. That was it, I just had to sit down there and then and start at the beginning. As a previous reviewer has said, once you start you just have to go on, nothing else enters your mind, the outside world disappears and you are magically transported back into the past, so many memories are brought into the present, you once again live through your own childhood, adulthood etc. Barbie takes you through her working life, the war years, the joyous meeting with her husband Bill, her new life as a wife and mother, it is the last section of the book that is the most moving and heartwarming story of a couple so much in love, of the happy times they shared, the travels, the friends they made and then on to the years when tragedy struck, their lives changed forever, their love became even stronger and without giving anything away, to the conclusion of this relationship, when I reached the very end, and the last words that Barbie had written I found I was more deeply moved than I had ever been with any other book....in a few hours I had lived through Barbies life with her and her family and I now feel incredibly humble. This book should be on everyone's bookshelf and read more than once. A gem of a book and a gem of a lady. Thank you Barbie for sharing this with us.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an eye-opening read for younger readers and a trip down memory lane for others. It is vividly written by a lady who has lived through eight decades, containing many historical moments on the war front and some wonderful cherished moments of growing up during these times and then beyond.
I can truly recommend this book. Once you start you have to go on. It is unusual to find such a fascinating story, for that is what it is, a wonderful story. Throughout it all, is an undying love story that holds together this great book. Just has to be read!!

What a wonderful book. This has to be my favourite autobiography. It was gripping, very interesting, easy to read, entertaining both in a fun and in a sad way. I could not put this book down. It's a page turner!
Barbie talks in great detail about her childhood before and during the war, and mad me both laugh and cry. She also talks about her work in hospital catering and her life with Bill, her wonderful husband. She makes me feel like I know her whole family and friends.
Beautifully written, a must for any book lovers!

Format: Paperback
I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author takes you back to a time many of us didn't experience and it certainly opens your eyes to how life was eight decades ago.
I think younger readers will find it intriguing, and would have a lovely insight to how life was for the older members of their families.
If you did live during those early years it will bring back many memories.
However, I think the love that began so many years ago and how it endured through trials and tribulations, is what makes this book so different from other autobiographies. Barbie takes you through many happy times and some sad ones, and has the gift of taking you along with her, from her childhood to the present day. I'm so glad I took that trip with Barbie.

An absolutely lovely book, fascinating and endearing. I would strongly recommend it.
