Review by: T. R. Robinson on July 25, 2017 :
This short memoir is a counterpart to another of the author’a memoirs, ‘Sail Away’.

Though it is short (960 words) this memoir provides a nice insight into 1950’s British life. Perhaps even more so because matters are seen from the viewpoint of someone, who up to this point, had only lived in the United States of America, a very different culture, especially back then.

The descriptions of homes and school certainly bring to light how life really was in those days. Something, those who lived in that era will probably have forgotten and certainly those born more recently will have little or no conception of. Even television period dramas do not really convey how life was. However, with this memoir the reader will gain a real sense of the times.

The whole tale is enhanced by the author mixing objective observations and personal experiences in the telling.
