Format: Hardcover
An often amusing account of a young widow's attempts to rear a large family whilst maintaining a distinctly British stiff upper lip, 'Scrambled Eggs for Christmas' is a refreshing, if somewhat meandering yarn from the lost genre of the post-war anecdote . In her efforts to scavenge food and lodging from her rich and aristocratic relatives, the main protagonist is beset by the obstacles her erring children throw up - a wayward son who is expelled from school for his excessive coiffeur; daughters who drop everything to hitch-hike across the continent. On reading the book I was left with a slight sense of disappointment. The last few chapters raced through a series of events that, in earlier chapters would have been handled with far more precision and detail. However, as a whole the book makes for good, light reading and offers some insight into the lot of a WWII widow.
