A Different Kind of Childhood by Jean Jupe
Price: £8.99 Post Band C
A wonderful recollection of Jean’s exploits as a child during the period 1940-1947 as she remembers them. Her memories of her father’s ‘call-up’, her recollections of how she and her mother coped with that separation and the adjustments that had to be made on his return. From Jean’s reminiscences of her mother’s ingenuity in the kitchen and her own imaginative endeavours to help in the war effort. These anecdotal recollections remind those who were around at the time of the tragedies, destruction, shock and anger of ordinary people and of how they coped.
