5.0 out of 5 stars A SERVANT HEART, 5 Dec. 2009
By

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Serving the Good and the Great: The Amazing True Story of Violet Liddle (Paperback)
From humble beginnings Vi Liddle presents in this book a contrast with the 'high and mighty'seen through the eyes of a kind,but observant lady,thereby giving a unique 'downstairs' perspecive of the thirties and W W II forties.Mary Batchelor's sympathetic biography is interpersed with snapshots of topical events and personalities etc of the period which puts the reader into the context of these decades.The short book will prove an invaluable 'must read' for future historians and biographers of this watershed era in English history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight into a lost era, 8 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Serving the Good and the Great: The Amazing True Story of Violet Liddle (Paperback)
The book is so easy to read and any names mentioned have a small inset box explaining who they were for readers who may not know much about Eisenhower for instance. Violet is wonderfully unassuming and her deep faith in God shines through the whole book. Growing up I knew her brother, Clifford Pond, and it is lovely to read about his sister who I had no idea had lived such an amazing life. Regardless of this, the book is an amazing read even to someone who has no faith but has an interest in that period of history.
