A blank book that makes you think about simple question, with a not too simple answer
"'Matron smiled. It was the smile that one woman gives to another and not the chilly facial movement from Matrons of old. "Do you think you would be able to work 9 to 3.30?" For a moment I couldn't think at all. There seemed something not quite right in being paid for so little labour.' At the end of the Second World War, as husbands came back to Civvy Street their wives had the luxury of staying at home with the children. For a short while at least. Soon Evelyn realised she had to find part-time work to make ends meet, and to her astonishment she was offered part-time hours at her old hospital. The day-to-day job hadn't changed much, but she was now a nurse and mother. Whooping cough and measles could still kill a small child, and the early '50s polio epidemic left the whole country in shock. But the nurses worked hard, moaned incessantly about their aching feet and yet found things to laugh at, just as they did from the start of their training. If old soldiers never die, then neither do nurses."
This book is to encourage families who may have had the experience of having children in their homes who were broken and discouraged and full of anger and felt as if they could never find love in this life time. This is for children who came from single parent homes or sometimes both parents in the home who had their intention elsewhere, who showed no love to them that they felt left out, outraged, angry, bitter, worthless, as if they were alone. Entering into a new home not knowing what to expect would have their guards up from what they had already experienced in there short lives. This book is to encourage those who may have gone through hardships in their own personal lives, to let you know that there is a way out.
