“And here it’s still living history…” (Bill Bryson)
Indeed, history is living in Britain. The past in this country has never gone away, it’s just become invisible and melted into the air we breathe. People find in British history food for thought, amusement, entertainment and solace in times of uncertainty.
Carina Cockrell-Ferre, a writer, journalist and blogger who came to this country 31 years ago, speaks about it from her own experience. The result of her love affair with British history has resulted in two books of historical novellas published in 2010 and 2012. This month her third book — a collection of stories entitled “How Wars End” — came out.
In the centre of her stories are always people, with their experiences, nerves, consciousness, mistakes, agonies, ecstasies and unexpected twists of destiny.
It is a humorous and insightful vision of the events and legends that shaped this land and her people and continue to do so.
