Review: KISSES ON A POSTCARD by Terence Frisby

Fleur Fisher from Fleur Fisher Reads chose Terence Frisby’s Kisses on a Postcard: A Tale of Wartime Childhood for the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s an excerpt from her review:

It was a horrible decision for parents to have to make. To keep their children and run the risk of the bombers, or to send them away to an unknown place with unknown people and have to bear the separation.

Terry was seven and and Jack was eleven when their parents took the decision to allow their sons to be evacuated. It was clearly painful, but they took every possible step to make the parting as natural as possible.

And their mother even thought of a way for her boys to be able to safely let her know how they were. She gave them a postcard.

Read the rest of her review to find out the story of the postcard.
