My Secret War Diary, by Flossie Albright: My History of the Second World War 1939-1945 by Marcia Williams
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Marcia Williams follows a young girl's coming of age during World War II in a moving fictional journal that includes the author's own family mementos. The year is 1939, and Britain is about to declare war on Germany. After Flossie's father joins the army, the nine-year-old girl is left to care for both her baby brother and her great-uncle. In a collage-style diary merging photos, postcards, and other memorabilia, Flossie relays events ranging from the arrival of evacuees to the wrenching news that her cousin has been killed. Her vibrant first-person narration reveals a humor and a fihting spirit that sees her through many a hardship until she welcomes her dad home at last.
