An Ordinary Life by Amanda Prowse


Nonagenarian Molly may be lying in a hospital bed on Christmas Eve 2019, but in her mind she's reliving 1940s London. As a young woman, she worked as an interpreter during WWII and fell in love with someone who helped her forget the ongoing war. Later joining the Resistance, Molly has a secret about which only her sister knows. In the present, unable to move, she thinks back to her life, a life that is anything but ordinary. Filled with sadness and sorrow, there is also hope and affection throughout so have a tissue nearby.
