Synopsis

Intermission A Place in Time… Enjoy this riveting autobiography filled with typical British humor and occasional suspense! This electrifying book offers a journey of continual spellbinding and brilliant stories, some of historic significance. Who would have thought that a young girl like Glen born in the aftermath of WWII, whose family lived on a fixed income would be present at Rock-n-Roll’s most memorable events when the Beatles took Liverpool and the world, by storm. Glen who at seven years old lost her adored father, and adapted to boarders taken in to help with the bills. Subsequently, she endured the selfish antics of her stepfather who even tried to dispatch her to Scotland at the age of eight, by placing her on the wrong train. Amazing vivid descriptions of this era, her associations with the Beatles and other Liverpool musicians bring to life an incredible period. The Liverpool lads knew she was there, and during their initial appearances, she recalls fond memories of her favorite Beatle Ringo, who was quite a clown. She shares her life from age six until sixteen, and it is an overwhelming journey. You will not put this book down! Take a break, and enjoy this ‘place in time’ and feel the ambience, familiarity, and awareness of the past.

***Cianna – #NerdGirlSunshine’s  Review***
What an interesting book. I have to say I really enjoyed the stories in this book. Each one was clearly able to be pictured in my mind’s eye, and each one gave me more to think on and more to learn. This book contains a mix of stories. Some autobiographical, some written using other historical accounts. It’s a good mixture but I will say it doesn’t flow easily into each story. Each story is individual and you need to shake off the previous one before moving into the next. As a girl who’s only lived in America, seeing stories of growing up in England and other places was really interesting to me because it’s so different then what we experience here. Also, I adore history so seeing a perspective of people who experienced events like the World Wars was nice. I tend to enjoy autobiographical pieces because they don’t need to be analyzed for a plot or character development, they are just people telling stories. Moments in their life and I think this author did a great job pulling outstanding moments from her life, her families life, and history to create an interesting collection.
