About this product
- DescriptionAs the Second World War wound down, five-year-old Jenny Lloyd began a new life with her parents and baby brother on a farm in a remote area of Cornwall. With telephone, electricity or indoor plumbing, the family-who had been separated for much of the war-w spent days together, experiencing the hardships and delights of English existence in the mid-twentieth century. In a series of verbal snapshots, Jenny describes her youth in England in the 1940s and 50s-her memories of World War II, her life on the farm, and her experiences at boarding school. Written in vividly descriptive prose, her story provides a fascinating portrait of an unusual childhood and adolescence.
- Author BiographyJenny Lloyd was born in England, and has lived there, in Italy, and in Mexico before moving to the United States in 1980. She is a retired history professor from The College at Brockport, and the author of four scholarly articles and one academic book. She began writing memoir and creative non-fiction in the 1990s, and has published memoir pieces in Biography and The Big Brick Review. She is also the author of Catching Meggie The Runaway Shetland Sheepdog (Createspace, 2013), about the nine-month effort to bring home their sheltie that ran away while she and her partner were in England.
