Who is that little girl?
She’s a “Dirty Evacuee”, just one of the many children scooped up from their London homes to escape the bombing during World War II. And yes, she also happens to be your author!
How to Survive World War and a Crazy Irish Mother will let you relive the experiences, both humorous and touching, of this shy little six-year-old as she survives the war along with a somewhat painful adolescence.
A fast and easy read, this humorous often bittersweet story of a disjointed childhood and equally disjointed adolescence spent with a dysfunctional Irish mother, loving relatives and an array of unwelcoming strangers, is impossible to put down!
