My (secret) War Diary by Flossie Albright. My History of The Second World War 1939-1945 By Marcia Williams

My (secret) War Diary by Flossie Albright. My History of The Second World War 1939-1945The experiences of a young girl during WWII told through a fictional diary of Flossie Albright (daughter of Archie Albright who also kept a diary from 1914 – 1918) Flossie records the day to day happenings of a village during a critical period in Britain’s history. We see the changing nature of a village through her eyes. From the leaving of her father and other able-bodied men as they went to prepare for a war that they hoped would happen. To the arrival of evacuees from London, a Kinder child from Germany and Land Girls. All of which is tinged with a little sadness due the death of Flossie’s mother who died a few months after the birth of Flossie’s brother.

About booksfrommybookshelf

I am a passionate reader of children's books (Primary aged) with a particular interest in picture books. I am always on the look out for children's books at are written by authors from other countries. I am also keen on technology and try to keep abreast of what is happening in a fast changing world. At present my day job is to support teachers and local authorities in the Yorkshire and Humber region (UK), which I really enjoy. Another aspect of my work is to present nationally developed work for the National Strategies. With economic cuts my job will terminate in Spring next year and I may be carrying out independent work based around high quality picture books. My other interest include my allotment, knitting and last but not least my family. My Twitter name is Orlama.
