Life during wartime is difficult and often dangerous. Families are forced to live together in cramped quarters, food is scarce, and the constant fear of bombings and attacks keeps everyone on their toes. In Life During Wartime, Shepard tells the story of his family during the Second World War, from the time they were evacuated from London to the time they were forced to flee their home in Illinois because of the bombing of Chicago. Shepard's family is a diverse group of people, from the young children to the parents, and they all have to cope with the challenges of life during wartime. Shepard tells his story with honesty and humor, and he provides a unique perspective on life during wartime.; 8vo; 383 pages.
