Description

MollyA fs touching account of life in Guernsey during the German Occupation brings events of the Second World War to life through the eyes of a young child. The Channel Islands were the only British territory to be occupied during the Second World War and many Islanders were immediately imprisoned. MollyA fs story begins on a lovely afternoon on the 28th of June 1940, when she recalls waving a recently bought cucumber at planes flying over the harbour, only to realise that they were German planes when they started to machine-gun and bomb the previously peaceful harbour. MollyA fs recollection of her childhood engages the reader from beginning to end and provides a charming account of her life set against the backdrop of war.
