5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tales of the Blitz, 25 Jun 2013
At one point in this wonderful book of letters about life in the blitz Molly says 'No one with imagination can be happy just now', and yet the book is full of humour, camaraderie, decency, crises-overcome and hilarious eccentricities. Besieged by fires, shells and bombs a vicarage by the Thames at Chiswick is a humane refuge for a large family plus evacuees, waifs and strays, bombed-out neighbours, dogs, cats and canaries. Imagination and enterprise are stimulated by shortage and lives are heightened by crisis.
The letters are delightfully illustrated by Anthea Craigmyle, Molly's daughter.
There's not a dull paragraph in this book. Everyone should read it.
