5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming wartime story, 11 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kisses on a Postcard: A Tale of Wartime Childhood (Hardcover)
This is a truly delightful heart warming read. I now feel as if I really knew "Aunty Rose" and " Uncle Jack", Terence Frisby has recreated his childhood self, and the world he found himself living in so beautifully, that the voices of these wonderful people ring out. So often with wartime memoirs we read of hardship, struggle, over whelming tragedy. loss and sorrow, but here we have a story of how two London brothers were welcomed into the home of a welsh couple in a tiny Cornish village, and the wonderful life they found for themselves there and the lessons that life taught them. We see Jack and Terry wage a wintery war on the village kids, and see poor Terry become a little sweet on Elsie - who is older and much more knowledgable about certain things. Jack and Terry soon become a part of this tiny remote community, where the arrival of black American soldiers isn't met with prejudice so much as sheer amazement. Of course not everyone is as lovely as Jack and Rose their foster parents, another constant presence is Miss Polmanor poor Elsie's gaudian, a relgious zealot who is hard and unyeilding. A thouroughly good read.
