Imagine if you will, living through World War II in England. The times were traumatic and terrifying. Now imagine that you are seeing the war Through the Eyes of a Child. Author Violet Apted describes what her life was like as a young girl in Ashford Kent in the years 1939 to 1945. Experience her perception of the events, as well as the restrictions placed on her and the effects this had on her life. British children during the war years experienced a vastly different childhood from today. They witnessed the deaths of family and friends, and faced the reality that their own lives were in constant danger. Yet the naivety and boundless innocence of a child weaves its way throughout this heartwarming story. Violet and her childhood friends were never sure if there would be a tomorrow. You will feel this young girl’s fears and share her hopes, as she remembers the horrors and dangers that no child should ever have to know. Perhaps if we take Violet’s story to heart we can learn from history’s mistakes, and no longer will we know War, Through the Eyes of a Child. The author’s other books are The Planting, Tommy and Jacqui Laughing With Kookaburras, and Jasmin and The Nature Fairies.
