An Ordinary Life

Ry PDFEPUBvery good and a main topic to read the readers are very What a blockbuster of a book Amanda has departed from her usual genre to some extent in this absorbing story which starts out during world war two and spans the years in between right up to the present day The format may have changed but the human interest at the heart of the story is handled with Amanda s usual deft touch We see events through the eyes of Marvellous Molly or M as she has been christened by the handsome soldier brother of her best friend Dragged reluctantly out for a drink after work Molly is introduced to handsome Jo and for both of them it s a coup de foudre It s a love that will inform and mould the rest of Molly s long life A few snatched moments is all they have before Jo is killed during preparations for DDay landings Molly is left bereft and pregnant at a time when being an unmarried mother meant disgrace and stigma Determined to keep her precious baby Molly hides the pregnancy from all but her devoted older sister Joyce who poignantly is unable to bear children with her devoted husband Albert Molly gives birth alone in the bathroom of the home she still shares with her unbending remote mother Disowned by her mother bereft by her all consuming grief for Jo and losing her job at the war ministry Molly is recruited thanks to her fluent French to embark on a dangerous mission to occupied France Fired by a burning desire to avenge her beloved s death and to ensure her son grows up in a safer world she agrees to allow Joyce and Albert to take little Jo to live with them in the country where he will be safer The sisters agree he will be returned after the war There follows a story spanning 8 decades encompassing grief loss the human cost of war heroism in it s many forms and ultimately the greatest of all emotions love This glorious book would make the most wonderful television saga and I hope some far sighted producer reads it and makes it happen I would give this book than 5 were it possible Absolutely spellbinding Another triumph from the incomparable Amanda Prowse

Amazed and always take inspiration from the contents of the book An Ordinary Life is so far removed from ordinary it might be titled An Extraordinary Life Nevertheless it is a beautifully written and at times heart breaking wrenching and warming It made me feel for the characters most impactfully Molly She was no ordinary person and lived no ordinary life if there is such a thingI enjoy historical fiction and the WWII sub genre particularly I ve read many books set during this time period and have found them all enjoyable AOL though was very special The sacrifices Molly made over the course of her life and career and the compartmentalized way in which she kept her own confidences was inspiring Wanting only the best for her nephew and willing to do virtually anything to make sure he had all the advantages a stable home life could offer was foremost in Molly s mind and guided the majority of her major decisions She led a daring and unconventional life for the time A working woman with a career mindset was unusual to say the least Unmarried with no plans to become involved in a relationship that would result in marriage was also outside the norm Although sometimes the universe has its own designs and Molly falls in love almost at first sight But it was not to be however the love endured throughout her long lifeThe ending was one of the most poignantly written that I have read in a very long time I hope I go in just that way Read this wonderful book You won t be disappointed
