The Soldier's Wife
In this light-hearted true story, Mary Sydney Burke relates how she strove to bring up her children in wartime England on a meager army allowance while her husband was on active service with the Grenadier Guards. After being reunited for a spell of post-war duty in Singapore, the family returned to England before finally migrating to Australia in a spirit of adventure and hope. Mary Sydney Burke writes frankly of the later problems caused by her husband's failing health, during which she struggled to keep the family from falling apart. Her indomitable spirit and deep faith shine out in a story by turns amusing, moving and perceptive.
