Evacuees and women of ill repute - a heart-warming novel from 'the queen of family saga'
Sheila Newberry was born in Suffolk and spent a lot of time there both before and during the war. She wrote her first 'book' before she was ten - all sixty pages of it - in purple ink. Her family has certainly been her inspiration and she has been published most of her adult life. She spent forty years living in Kent with her husband John on a smallholding, and has nine children and twenty-two lively grandchildren. They retired back to Suffolk where Sheila still lives today.
A lovely read that I won't forget in a hurry * Echoes in an Empty Room * The cover page is beautiful. The characters are complicated but still simple when they are read about. The stroy moves fast. The language is very simple. The book gives a good taste of life during the war. It is almost nostalgic (...) I am glad I agreed to read and review the book. It is definitely a new type of literature for me * Meraki Post *
