Peter (pdinuk) | 7 comments The Bride's Trunk A Story of War and Reconciliation by Ingrid Dixon

New nonfiction book that is particularly topical this year .....

Seventy years ago, on 1st August 1946 in the aftermath of the Second World War, the British Government withdrew the ban on British soldiers marrying German women. The subsequent months witnessed a steady flow of German women arriving in Britain to marry British soldiers and ex-servicemen.

In a blend of object-based social history and family memoir, Ingrid tells the story of her parents, who met in the chaos of post-war Aachen, Germany, and married in 1946. This is her first book, based on her own experience of growing up within both the British and German cultures. Jackie Ashley has called it ‘an extraordinary narrative’ and Dr Philip Towle thinks it a ‘sensitive treatment of the conflicting feelings associated with war’. It is profusely illustrated and we hope that many readers will agree that it is a page-turner.

Available for free download through Kindle Unlimited at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IL87WOO or https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01IL87WOO.
If you like it, a review at Amazon would be very welcome.

Peter (pdinuk) | 7 comments The Bride's Trunk isn't showing on KU in the US at the moment, although it does so in the UK. I've asked Amazon to sort the problem out and they should do so within 24 hours, I hope.

Peter (pdinuk) | 7 comments The recent Kindle Countdown for
The Bride’s Trunk A Story of War and Reconciliation by Ingrid Dixon
was disappointing, possibly because the large number of photographs and documents in the book limited how much it could be discounted.

However, t's still getting a modest number of reads on KU, as the file size doesn't seem to matter.

As well as the positive reviews on Amazon UK and Germany, it now has a couple on Amazon.com, e.g. "a beautifully written account of events which were tragic and impacted families on both sides of the conflict of the second world war". As a reminder, it's Ingrid Dixon's story of her German mother and British soldier father, who met in the chaos of post-war Germany and married in 1946. Not an unusual story, but this may be the first written by the child of such a couple, examining the issues of growing up in two cultures.

Still free on KU at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IL87WOO, Thanks to those who've downloaded it already!

If you liked it, do please leave a review at Amazon.
