This review is from: Kisses on a Postcard: A Tale of Wartime Childhood (Hardcover)
The story of two evacuee children during the Second World War. The author and his brother Jack are sent to the tiny Cornish hamlet of Doublebois, where they enjoy three wonderful years being looked after by 'Uncle Jack' and 'Auntie Rose'. This is a wonderfully warm account of those times, and an experience almost to be envied from the window of modern life, despite the reminders of the realities of war. No 7 Railway Cottages seems an infinitely wonderful place to be, proving that things don't have to glitter to be gold. Loved this book, and can't wait to see the promised musical. Why Kisses on a Postcard? I won't spoil it for you. Read the book and find out!
