About the Author

May Smith was born in 1914 in Swadlincote, South Derbyshire. She trained to be a teacher at Goldsmiths College, London. For many years she kept a diary, with a record of her life and her reading. After her first post at an all age elementary school in Swadlincote, in 1937 she moved to Springfield, a new Swadlincote junior school, where she taught during the Second World War. After marriage and children and a break from full-time teaching, she returned to Springfield, where she remained until her retirement in 1975. She died in 2004.

Reviews

I grew to love every single detail. This is what it really must have been like to live through the war in Derbyshire on a teacher's salary with no car. I was fascinated - Spectator - Ysenda Maxtone GrahamMay Smith is simply a joy, a bright spark in dark times - The Times - Iain FinlaysonWell written, witty and absorbing, Smith's chronicles give us an insight into the life and impact of the war in a small English village - Yorkshire Evening Post - Nilima Marshall
