Not a book – a true story of wartime joie de vivre
Two women decided to cycle through some of the Scottish Highlands’ most dramatic landscapes. Nothing ununsual about that – except that this was in the middle of World War 2.
They documented their journey with meticulous care, and compiled the story of their experiences in a short diary. The objective was to send the account to their partners, who were abroad in the thick of the war.
The resulting narrative is charming, witty, indiosyncratic and altogether fasctinating, evoking a world that is still the same today ... and yet subtly different. I’ve inherited the diary, and when I re-read it recently I was so taken by it that I wanted to make it accessible to the world. You can see the results for yourself.
I’ve created a micro-website for the diary within this Peter Rowlands website. It looks quite different from the rest of this site, but while you’re there you really are still on my website, and you can click back from the top menu any time.
