Tales of Growing Up in Wartime Malta

STORIES MY PARENTS TOLD ME: Tales of Growing Up in Wartime Malta, is a collection of twelve short stories based on actual events during the Second World War on the Mediterranean Island nation of Malta. The collection describes difficult times when survival was paramount, and family was everything. The stories are interspersed with interesting historical details about Malta and its role in WWII which establish a setting for tales that are sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous, and always engaging.
