This is a true story. It is an account of the
journey of three generations, from the dark
days of the Second World War, to the
freedom of peace time.
Into the family history is woven the bravery
of the soldier and the dilemma of the
conscientious objector. The story then
travels to North Wales, to the formation of
the 'Woodcutters'. It then follows the family
down to the artists' colony on the cliffs in
Cornwall. Then began the struggle to
rebuild life, relationships and meaning in a
world where all had been lost.
Poems are interspersed throughout the text,

touch of philosophical contemplation.
