The Railway Carriage Child by Wendy Fletcher, a review.

Despite reading and promoting this book I haven’t reviewed it, on this my blog.I thought I had but it seems not I am now correcting my oversight with sincere apologies to Wendy.
The Railway Carriage Child is a beautifully written account of a young girl’s childhood, growing up living in an unusual home made from two Victorian railway carriages.
The account is so vivid you feel you are there with Wendy as she revisits those times, walking through the Fenland town that was her childhood home and now is again. We feel we are sitting with her on the bus and seeing the world through her eyes.
The finest auto biography I have had the pleasure of reading.

I look forward to reading more from this talented author I understand she has two more books in the works.

It is available on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Railway-Carriage-Child-Wendy-Fletcher/dp/1916481736/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=the+railway+carriage+child&qid=1610984138&sr=8-1

  1. Thank you, kind Sir, you could get a plug in there for the group books by adding something like wendy is also a contributor to the whittlesey wordsmiths two anthologies wtwwb and afw. I’ve also got two poems in the Christmas edition of The Poet published December 2020, compiled by Robin Barratt if you think that’s worth a mention, just to make you a bit more work, wendy

  2. I didn’t realise you were in The Poet Magazine’s Christmas collection, Wendy. You kept that quiet. With three of us in that edition (Wendy, Tessa and me) Whittlesey Wordsmiths must represent a fair proportion of the contributions fom England.
    Loved your poems, by the way. Evocative.
