Right now I am reading Intermission: A Place In Time by Glenda Lee Vollmecke.  Check out the teaser and synopsis below:

After forty minutes of pushing and pulling, it became clear that leg extraction from the foul-smelling sewer undeniably needed adult assistance.  Finally, Elsie grabbed Rita’s small shoulders.  “Stay and wait until I bring some help,” cried Elsie dramatically.  Sullenly Rita glared at Elsie.  “Where the hell do you think I’m going?”  Confused and skeptical the small girl shook her head.  Page 26


SynopsisIntermission: A Place in Time… Enjoy this riveting autobiography filled with typical British humor and occasional suspense! This electrifying book offers a journey of continual spellbinding and brilliant stories, some of historic significance. Who would have thought that a young girl like Glen born in the aftermath of WWII, whose family lived on a fixed income would be present at Rock-n-Roll’s most memorable events when the Beatles took Liverpool and the world, by storm. Glen who at seven years old lost her adored father, and adapted to boarders taken in to help with the bills. Subsequently, she endured the selfish antics of her stepfather who even tried to dispatch her to Scotland at the age of eight, by placing her on the wrong train. Amazing vivid descriptions of this era, her associations with the Beatles and other Liverpool musicians bring to life an incredible period. The Liverpool lads knew she was there, and during their initial appearances, she recalls fond memories of her favorite Beatle Ringo, who was quite a clown. She shares her life from age six until sixteen, and it is an overwhelming journey. You will not put this book down! Take a break, and enjoy this ‘place in time’ and feel the ambiance, familiarity, and awareness of the past.
