by W.A.M. MacKenzie
I was born a few days before the outbreak of the Second World War, but it was near the end of the war that I became aware of the world around me.
We –my Mother, siblings and I– were staying with my Grandad in Proncy beside Dornoch. Our father, who I did not recall at that time, was away in the Army.
Great excitement resulted from a letter from this absent stranger in which he forecast that the war was nearly over, he would be returning and we would all go home.
“Home!” All the family exclaimed with joy but I didn’t join in. Instead I looked up from my place on his lap into Grandad’s face and asked “Where’s Home?”
Paperback, 200 pages.
