Journal Entry 1 by wingNu-Kneeswing from Knaresborough, North Yorkshire United Kingdom on Friday, March 25, 2016

We spent a lovely sunny Good Friday out and about: walking at Beningbrough Hall and Topcliffe, lunching in Boroughbridge, touring six of North Yorkshire's red telephone boxes that have been turned into community libraries/book exchanges, and visiting family ....

I found this book on the well-stocked shelves in the beautiful village of Tholthorpe! One of the reasons I chose it from the many books on offer is that I try to read two or three nonfictions a month so am always on the look out for interesting possibilities, which this seems to be, Jane Lapotaire being such a familiar face! Plus, the box was so full I didn't like to leave one without taking one away in exchange! Well of course I had to, obviously!

Amazon Editorial Review: "Jane knew she was a war baby because Mummy Grace said all war babies had to drink the treacly black malt from The Clinic every morning. Then Mummy Grace told Jane she wasn't her mummy. Her mummy was a lady who lived in Le Tookay. Or was it Cassablanka?
An exceptional memoir, written by one of our most outstanding actresses, Everybody's Daughter, Nobody's Child is a vivid and moving chronicle of childhood."

Memories of an unsual, not to say unorthodox, childhood in post-War Suffolk, with exotic trips abroad to visit her mother when she was older.
In the foreward she writes that 'this is not a formal autobiography, rather a collection of impressions and experiences seen through the eyes of a child' and as such she fulfils her aim beautifully!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I left this on the shelves of the well-stocked Roecliffe red telephone box book exchange/community library this afternoon - bringing a couple of books home instead, of course!

Well over a million people around the world give their books a unique BookCrossing IDentity number (BCID) before sending them out to find new readers. Since the start of the scheme in April 2001 over twelve million such books have been put into circulation. This is one of them!

Our hope is that we can track the progress of our books once they've left our hands - and that's possible if finders like you visit the website, key in the BCID and leave a comment, however long or short. It's fun, it doesn't have to cost anything, although the site always appreciates donations towards running costs, and you can remain anonymous if you wish. You don't have to join but if you do you'll be able to number and track your own books!
