Henrietta's War: News from the Home Front 1939-1942 (Bloomsbury Group) - Joyce Dennys

My favorite letter was dated May 21,1941.


This is one of my favorite parts of the whole book and I do so hope Faith realizes how much the Conductor adores her before it's too late.


The following exchange is between Henrietta and the Conductor:


"Faith's been telling me about the A.R.P.,' I said. 'I had no idea people had to sleep down there at night. I think it's simply wonderful-'


But the conductor wasn't listening.  A tender smile lit up his face. 'She does snore so, bless her heart!' he said. 'You know, Henrietta, you simply wouldn't believe such a loud noise could be made by such a darling little nose.'



All this after Faith tells Henrietta she could never marry him because she's discovered he snores.


It was sweetness personified :)
