Losing Hope by Nikki Dee
Losing Hope is the story of a young girl snatched from her mother when only five years old, and rediscovered in a burning house 15 years later.
It is the story of building trust and love, and searching for the mother/ daughter relationship that was taken away.
But as the truth behind Hope’s past is uncovered, will the scandals and secrets of the past rip apart the society from which she was taken.
The affection Joy Lennick nee Mansfield felt and feels for Wales is immediately evident in this charming Memoir. Separated in World War II from her parents – with her father serving in the Air Force abroad and her mother working “in ammunitions” – she finds herself living on a mountain with her two brothers. It is a world away from the cosy environment of her home in Dagenham, Essex. Her story evokes the magic of childhood: from the discovery of nature’s minute miracles to the joy of using our five senses to the full. Joyce meets kindness and curiosity, as well as hostility…and discovers a valuable wealth of new experiences, not least the world of ‘dance.’ While bombs are raining on her home town, she is sliding down a Welsh slag tip on a piece of lino and alternately appearing in “Mother Goose” in Merthyr Tydfil’s main theatre. Learning that humour is the cement of survival, she also learns to cope with constant change and occasional heartache. And when at last the war ends, she discovers the meaning of unreigned happiness. Joy salutes all the many kind people who took in and cared for evacuees at a great time of need.
