Marcia Williams’s bio

My Secret War Diary, by Flossie Albright
My History of the Second World War 1939-1945

author/illustrator: Marcia Williams

The year is 1939, and Britain is about to declare war on Germany. After Flossie's father joins the army, the nine-year-old girl is left to care for both her baby brother and her great-uncle. In a collage-style diary merging photos, postcards, and other memorabilia, Flossie relays events ranging from the arrival of evacuees to the wrenching news that her cousin has been killed. Her vibrant first-person narration reveals a humor and a fighting spirit that sees her through many a hardship until she welcomes her dad home at last.

Marcia Williams follows a young girl's coming of age during World War II in a moving fictional journal that includes the author's own family mementos.
