Sheila Rowe reveals the joys and sorrows she experienced as a child growing up at the time of the Great Depression during the 1930s. She lived with her parents and brother in the seaside town of Hastings. How she dealt with the pain of leaving the coast and all those she loved during the Second World War, as an evacuee, is revealed in the original letters exchanged on a weekly basis with her family. They expose the struggle to maintain and protect the fragile web of a separated family as they express their feelings while trying to live up to the expectations of the culture of the day and maintain a stiff upper lip at all costs. Leaving home again as a young woman, letters continue to play a major role as Sheila chronicles her experiences while training as a nurse from 1947 for four years at King's College Hospital. She was particularly close to her brother at this transformational time in their early lives.
