kisses on a postcard,
This review is from: Kisses on a Postcard: A Tale of Wartime Childhood (Paperback)
A beautiful story full of warmth, good times and kind hearted people. A childhood experiencing the simple things in life, the kinds of things that today,s children know nothing about. What child today would walk over a mile to school in all weathers and having to sit in a classroom all day with cold wet feet.
A piece from the book made me smile as I read ( Going to bed was an ordeal, getting into warm pyjamas downstairs, no heat upstairs, but a stone hot water bottle in bed to put your feet on as shivering you scramble to snuggle down under blankets and eiderdown. Waking to ice on the inside of your window).Those certainly were days to remember well. They may have been hard times but we were happy.
Also there are lovely pictures with smiling faces. This book was my kind of read and I hope it will give others readers as much enjoyment as its given me, plus the smiles.
Happy reading everyone.
