A Wonderful Woman

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
This brief memoir describes aspects of family life during and after the Second World War. It is offered in memory of my mother, Rose, a truly wonderful woman.

Nowadays, similar living conditions are often portrayed in TV shows where a family may suffer a month in such poverty. My wonderful mother coped for ten hard years and ensured that her three children survived, and often thrived.

About Arthur A Perkins

Once upon a time, in a former life, I had a Literary Agent who is now world class. Around the same time, I was paid to write 3 plays for a well-known Theatre Director. In no time at all, my first novel was published.

These succeeding events, spread over 2/3 years, were so disappointing that I then gave up writing for 20+ years.

Now decrepit and bed-ridden, I am making a late comeback. If I can attract a few readers with this off-beat piece, I will proceed to upload a couple of full-size novels (equally off-beat).

Review by: Robert Penner on Feb. 02, 2010 :
This story was a nice reminder of how people functioned during wartime. We often forget or are jaded on how much people suffered. Although I wasn't alive during WWII I have been lucky to hear stories from my Grandfather and others his age. This is a wonderful tribute to a woman who had to hold a family together while her husband/father was off to war. A fine little piece of history.
