Christmas Fiction, Biography: general, Prose: non-fiction

Bestselling author Dot May Dunn returns with more of her wonderful life experiences.

Dot May Dunn grew up in Derbyshire, the daughter of a miner, during the wartime years. In 1951 she joined the NHS as an early recruit and went on to train as a nurse.

Dot's books are full of wonderful anecdotal insight into the life that she has experienced, written with warmth, humour and vivid accounts of her surroundings - from deprivation, health problems and poverty, to personal determination, the surprises faced by midwives and the social history of the pre- and post-war years. Dot draws upon her wealth of experience and shares her life with her readers, provoking both laughter and tears along the way.

Centred on Christmas during war-time, this book will focus on community spirit and the sense of coming together and supporting each other, which Dunn captures so well.
