The Yellow Duster Sisters 1939. As war breaks out across Europe, nine-year-old Susie and her older sister Gyll are despatched to Africa by their mother.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Southern Rhodesi After World War II 19 novembre 2013
Par Val Atkinson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have at this stage only read a few chapters. I enjoy the setting of Rhodesia. I grew up in the country. I found it a wonderful friendly and comfortably existence for everyone up the period when UDI was declared. Life changed after that, but everyone was still friendly. In my formative years I do not recally tensions, they were black, we were white but all managed to get along together.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A little bit of unknown history! 13 mars 2012
Par Kathleen Pickrell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a first-person account of 2 sisters who were sent away to Africa during the London blitz. Kennaway's account of their travails in Africa and then back in England is very emotional; I had often wondered how children who left home and family endured. A wonderful book!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very well-written memoir 3 novembre 2015
Par Meaghan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Kennaway tells the story of her evacuation and return in a breezy tone, as if she's talking to you over a glass of tea. She is good at showing how she felt as a child while also looking back at things from an adult's perspective. I will warn you though: the early part of her book, pre-evacuation, describes a happy childhood in her upper-middle-class English family, but the remaining two-thirds are basically nothing but misery. There was nothing like she would have suffered had she spent the war in England, but the cold, unloving, unfeeling adults in her life made things very unpleasant for her and her sister, and their parents were no better.

Susan and her sister Gyll, aged nine and eleven, were evacuated to South Africa to stay with an elderly aunt and her aunt's employers, a family (parents and grandparents) with a daughter Susan's age. Their carers basically didn't want them there and made no secret of it, particularly as months passed and the war continued on and it became obvious that the girls would have to stay a very long time. (They anticipated staying six months. It turned out to be four years.) It wasn't that anyone was outright abusive (mostly) but Susan and Gyll got no love or affection from their hosts, who could barely tolerate them. Gyll was sexually abused by one of the men in the family, and when she finally got the courage to tell, she was blamed for "seducing" him. (She was about thirteen at the time. He was a middle-aged man.) Their parents stopped writing them and all they really had was each other, and their friendship with the daughter in the family.

I wanted to basically grab every single one of the adults in the story, particularly her parents, and give them a good shake. I mean, what the beep? As I said, the parents stopped writing. And when Susan and Gyll returned to the UK, both their father and mother made it clear that they didn't want them around. In addition to that, for three their parents lied to them and kept an important secret for no good reason other than that they didn't feel like telling them.

The book is not as depressing as I make it sound in this review. Although the author, Susan, doesn't sugarcoat the emotional deprivation she suffered, her perspective and the details she has about her relationship with her sister keep the story going. I recommend.

I throughly enjoyed this story regarding the changes that so many families undertook because of World War 2. Enjoy this historical perspective!
