"At the outbreak of World War II Madame Teissier du Cros's French husband joined his regiment, leaving his wife, a Scotswoman, alone with their two small sons in a house in the Cevennes in Southern France. In this intimate account of their day-to-day activities from that moment on until the liberation, the author gives an engrossing picture of the French, of daily life under enemy occupation in the provinces and briefly in Paris. Without the slightest trace of self-pity, she describes her determination to survive this long period of hardship. Faced with the growing barrier between herself and her bourgeois parents-in-law, who placed their confidence in Petain, she still managed to retain her relationship with them and to keep her own sense of proportion. Communication with the outside world became increasingly difficult; news of her husband was infrequent; and the lack of nourishment for her children created continual anxiety. At the same time Madame Teissier du Cros's moving record abounds with an appreciation of the provincial landscape and of rural life. The final chapters are alive with excitement as this spirited woman becomes involved with the Maquis, and the sense of exhilaration mounts as the first American troops arrive." Small bump at bottom corner of both boards, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, a few small edge tears - taped, two small line indentations on front panel, large corner crease on rear flap.
