We learn of a much simpler time, unencumbered with mobile phones, computers and the internet, where families met frequently and talked face to face. It was a simpler time, but not necessarily an easy life for Lottie as she soon learns when, from the age of 6 she begins to take on the responsibility for much of the early care of her three younger sisters.
We follow Lottie’s progress as she becomes a young woman, and experiences those difficult teenage years, made harder with the outbreak of the war at the age of 16, and the sorrow it brings.
Lottie was a woman who ‘did her duty’ not only for her immediate family, but also for the war effort when she signed up to become a Wren in the Royal Navy.
Many of the stories in this book will spark memories of similar experiences for those that grew up in that period, but they will also remind us all of the importance of the support of a caring family in our daily lives.
I am sure you will love Lottie too yourself
My wife just finished reading it and cried at the end! I won't give anything away though - see for yourself' she is going to lend it to her Mum who was in the WRNS after the war though. Think I will have to get another copy now to take into the office.
