Product description

This, described as "one of the most remarkable, one of the most inspiring, of the books that have come out of a cruel and senseless war (WWII)" recounts the experiences of a Belgian lawyer's wife who plunged into the Resistance as soon as war broke out, and suffered appallingly at the hands of the Gestapo.

Jeanty Raven was born near Liege in Belgium, but educated in London at The Holy Child of Jesus School in Cavendish Square. The diary she managed to keep while in prison during the war was published in 1948, and after the war she worked with the War Crimes Commission and the World Council of Churches on Refugees. A keen amateur musician and artist, she was first married to a Belgian lawyer, who perished in a prison camp during the war; she then married Canon Charles Earle Raven, and lived in Cambridge.

Our book is in good condition for its age, the intact dust-jacket protected by a plastic cover. It is bound in black cloth with gilt titles etc on the spine, and there are no signs of shelf wear. Inside, the pages are generally a little yellowed, with some staining here and there, and the free endpapers are a little grubby, but the text is clean and unmarked and the binding is firm. A W H Smith & Son Library bookplate is affixed inside the front cover.
