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.
Molly Bihet was born, and grew up, in Guernsey. She was just nine at the start of the Second World War. She now lives with her husband and has two daughters.
