Christmas Around the Village Green : In a WWII 1940s Rural Village, Family Means the World at Christmastime Paperback
by Dot May Dunn
Dot May Dunn grew up in Derbyshire, the daughter of a miner, during the wartime years.
In 1951 she joined the NHS as an early recruit and went on to train as a nurse.
Dot's books are full of wonderful anecdotal insight into the life that she has experienced, written with warmth, humour and vivid accounts of her surroundings - from deprivation, health problems and poverty, to personal determination, the surprises faced by midwives and the social history of the pre- and post-war years.
Dot draws upon her wealth of experience and shares her life with her readers, provoking both laughter and tears along the way. Centred on Christmas during war-time, this book will focus on community spirit and the sense of coming together and suporting each other, which Dunn captures so well.
