My book this week is by Helen Forrester and I thoroughly enjoyed it, read late into the night to finish it. It is another story set in the time of the second World War. This one is about the air raids on Liverpool which began on May 1st 1941 and in particular the effect they had on the interwoven lives of three women. As in my last read it is the courage of these brave women which stands out in the face of adversity. The ability to find happiness among such horror and destruction is amazing.
My Mum and Dad met and became engaged at this time, marrying in 1943 so I made a photograph of them, from that time, the focal point of a scrapbook page. I worked in Craft Artist 2 and used some embellishments from a Serif kit called 40's Wartime.
