A question I ask all the characters in the book is what’s the most memorable time of life so far?
Poor Hilda’s was...
"When all my brothers had to go to War and coming home from church one evening to see my mum in tears who never cried. This was when England declared war on Germany (1939). My mum said I never thought I would rear my son’s to be gun fodder."
I am just constantly reminded how strong this generation was and still is. Both Hilda’s parents died very early.
What a pleasure to have met Hilda, she was always smiling from the moment I walked into her home till the moment I left.
