Somehow the author manages to bring together all of these stories with an understanding that helps mould them together and allows the reader to come to terms with the hardships and happiness endured and felt by everyone in the book. Truly inspirational reading.
Julie has skillfully woven together an inticrate strand of historical fact, personal accounts and human emotion, to produce an excellent account of life at the time and the effects post-war. Highly recommended.
