When bombs fell over cities like Glasgow and London people would take refuge in shelters and tube stations until the all-clear signal sounded and 'normal' life resumed. Many years later Maurine remembered those times - the rationing, the evacuation, the fears and excitement of living as a child during the Second World War. Taking up her pen she wrote about those historic days. These were stories that she could leave behind so that others would know what it was like and the real secret of how they survived during those troublesome days. This will serve as a useful insight for children into World War II from a Christian perspective.
Maurine Murchison was brought up during the Second World War but survived and went on to be an influential Christian in her day. Starting a ladies’ bible study movement later on in life she was one of a committee of women who saw 500 women’s bible study groups grow from just a handful of meetings.
"War child is an excellent book to help children connect with the past. They will read through Maurine's memories and realize that Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever." - Carine MacKenzie
"Here is a splendid read for both young and old! It combines the story of a memorable childhood with sure guidance for a joyful and useful life. The many who admired Maurine Murchison (1935-2008) will recognize her portrait of the 'War Child', and those who did not know her will value meeting her in these charming pages." - Iain Murray ~ Editorial Director, Banner of Truth
