Reminiscences of Childhood
Review by The Mole
In this tale a man returns to the village of his childhood and recollects a friendship he had with a quirky resident and her menagerie of pets and how this suffered when industrialisation moved into the village.
A rather sad and human tale of how industry tramples on the hopes and dreams of individuals while it promises a golden future for everyone - a dream rarely realised.
With beautiful pictures throughout the author invokes the sound of the seaside and I felt the hot sun on my back and could smell the salt in the air. A very atmospheric book that will have older readers remembering seaside holidays of their own childhood.
A book for the serious reader aged 7+.
