~A Place in Time
By Glenda Lee Vollmecke
This is a very entertaining and riveting memoir. The author writes with British humour that brings her memories to life. From beginning to end, she keeps your full attention with her vivid memories.
Glenda Lee Vollmecke takes you back to her childhood in postwar WWII England. She shares her life from age six through sixteen. It was a difficult time in history, and also for young Glenda. Her relationship with her self-centered stepfather was not a good one. She also grew up with boarders living with her family, to add to the household income. Unfortunately that was one the realities of Postwar times.
Glenda goes on to share stories of the dawning of the 1960s, and the early days of The Beatles. These were formative years, and Glenda was there to see and experience this amazing time in history. She recalls fond memories of her favourite Beatle, Ringo Starr, calling him a “clown”.
The stories that Glenda shares are especially interesting because they are real. Her special memoir was a pleasure to read. This is a book not to be missed.
Glenda Lee Vollmecke and her husband own and operate a successful alpaca farm in Colorado. Her husband creates items from the alpaca wool that he spins. Glenda paints and sculpts, and also offers psychic counseling.
