A Review from Kathleen Knowles:

Finished book "Escape to Paradise Island". Loved it Trish. Could 'smell' the Frangipanis!. Loved the print hun,  easier to read and therefore enjoy. Got involved with the characters tho! Could of hung sleazy Marcello up by his tongue, bitch slapped Ken, and poked Harry in the bloody eyes for his selfishness, not to mention do the same thing to Rachel!!! Grrrr but it turned out very well without blood being spilt 😅 saving Return to.Paradise Island for when l go up to Scotland in two weeks time. So get your next boo, 'The Office Girls, on the go Trish or l'll be having 'withdrawal' symptoms!

A Girl From Birkenhead - An autobiography by Trish Ollman

A Girl From Birkenhead

Growing up in Liverpool, England, Trish Ollman, as the eldest of 6 children, had to take on the responsibility of caring for her 5 siblings. Hers was a large, poor family whose parents had little to no parenting skills, meaning that in their small terraced house, it was each for themselves. At the age of 16yrs Trish eloped to Scotland to marry Ian and they had 2 Baby boys  by aged 17. After 5 years of hardship (they were even homeless in the harsh British winter at one stage) and with nothing to leave behind, Trish and Ian emigrated to Australia when they were 21. Two more children were born, but life never seemed to get any easier, and with numerous careers and house moves, along with taking on the full time care of two of her grandchildren when she and Ian should have been thinking of retirement, it would be many years before Trish could finally say she was at last, content. This is one of the most fascinating Autobiographies you will ever read!! It has been said by many that you won’t  be able to put it down!!

Dear Alice Book Cover - by Trish Ollman - A soldiers letters from World War I

Dear Alice

'DEAR ALICE' is a transcript of letters sent by my husband, Ian's grandfather, Ken Hague, from Yorkshire, England, to his wife Alice, during the Boer War and WW1.The letters, mostly written on odd pieces of paper and in pencil (which had faded in parts), where given to me by my husband's mother, Ken's daughter, to look after, as I am the 'Historical' one in the family.

I decided that rather than just leaving them in a tin to be forgotten, I would transcribe the letters and put them into a book, as a Historical Diary for our ancestors. It took me many years transcribing on and off but eventually I had a book.

In it, Ken writes of the deprivation and the terrible conditions he suffered during this terrible time. Of how he is freezing cold and up to his knees in horrible muddy water, and with holes in his boots and socks. He constantly asks Alice for news from home, cigarettes and food, most of which never reached him. Unfortunately, the Censor's pen made sure that no strategic details of Ken's Battalion, a Yorkshire Regiment, were written about.

In this book there are pictures of Ken's actual letters and 'Quick Fire Cards' to Alice, along with photos and the telegrams Alice received. To find out what happened to Ken and Alice and their 4 girls, do get a copy of this fascinating book.

It is a wonderful piece of real  historical evidence of life for a Soldier in The Great War.
