Twilight and Wildflowers

by Jean Arnold
£11.99   paperback  Peacock Publications (2008)

Twilight and Wildflowers by Jean Arnold Twilight and Wildflowers is a warm story of the author's childhood. Set largely in Liverpool, but with sojourns whilst evacuated in Colomendy, North Wales, and after the war, a time in Barton-upon-Humber. The story speaks with feeling, but not shallow sentimentality, of the joys, the wonders, the people, and the sadness of life in the Depression and later the war as seen through young eyes.
 
Jean Arnold has brought to life the generations of people who populated her childhood. She has done so with a style that makes us feel we have known them and her. So too, Liverpool in the thirties and forties lives before us through her descriptions - a city of warmth and bustle that may have moved beyond its golden age of prosperity by that time, but remained irrepressible nevertheless.
