My book in process is a “sort-of” memoir of a young girl in the 1940’s. I am aiming to present a story that would start discussions between seniors of their memories during wartime and post war adjustments when the troops came home. Also, I would like to create a glimpse of that decade for the “young folks”. That should provoke some discussions of the way things were.
Working title is “Tea Leaf Annie” and am thinking of using this picture of me in the early 1940’s as the front cover and make a collage of many off the family photos that illustrate the stories for the back cover.
