Take the Bad with the Good…

gma1 Parachute Girls continues to receive reviews of every sort. Both bad and good. I think Grandma would be happy with this because that would make a perfect tagline for her life...take the bad with the good. War is unpleasant and with it comes many hardships. There were both happy and sad times. Things she longed to remember and things she longed to forget. I think, however, there is one thing she'd enjoy immensely if she were still with us today. Her story, her life- the bad and the good- is still alive. She is still a part of the mix! And knowing grandma, she'd like that part best. So, while readers may find certain aspects of her life unappealing or distasteful including things like eating horse meat when no other option remained, they are there in type for all the world to read. Unchanged by time, opinion, or pride. My grandma was truthful and open. She told us of a wartime through the eyes of someone who lived it, and for that reason, I'll always take the bad with the good!

  1. Very true! Loved Kay’s story. Great book with accurate details of WWII…including food rationing and meat shortages. Yes, I have personally spoken to some Brits from WWII who were glad to get horse meat! Hoping a sequel to “Parachute Girls” is in the works.
