This is the end of Book One of Nine O’Clock Horses, written and read by Angela Ewing.
You have been listening to a story: episodes 1 – 12 of a family during and after WWII in England. A war that changed the faces, the lives, and the politics of Great Britain.
You have heard about an average English family and their struggles to maintain normalcy in a world where there may be no tomorrow; a world of food rationing, bombs dropped without warning in the dead of night, relatives and friends suddenly missing, found in the rubble left behind. Anguish brought upon by an enemy they cannot see. Through the eyes of our protagonist, Amelia Norton, a child born into this chaos, we catch a glimpse of her own family and the inner turmoil they face surviving WWII.
Please listen next time to Episode 13 of Nine O’Clock Horses on KCIW, Curry Coast Community Radio, to find out how Amelia will fare in America.
