    Book details

June was born in 1929 in the upstairs bedroom of the Camden Head Public House where her Father was the Licensee. Her life was full as she encountered many wonderful experiences in her early years. The trips to the country to stay with Grandparents, her frolics in the English countryside, where she could run ‘:free’: with her brother Eddie. These were idyllic times and are highlighted in the many references to ‘:Cousley Wood’:. At the tender age of just 8 years of age, her Father died, which turned her life literally ‘:upside down’:. The Family needed to leave their home in Camden Town and moved to The Princess of Wales, which became the family home. At just eleven years old however, she was sent away to Boarding School together with her brother Eddie. This story recounts June’:s many experiences throughout her formative years, and beyond. June’:s story depicted in ‘:The Publican’:s Daughter’:, includes the turmoil of life in London during the Second World War and how this historical event impacted on her family and her life. A World War brings people from all walks of life closer together as they rally to support one another, enabling them to contend with what was happening around them for so many years. I feel that this book is also a tribute to the Powell family who enriched the lives of others as they pursued their own life paths. This is a story of resilience, of enduring incredible hardship at times through circumstances that one would never dream of occurring in one person’:s life. June survived Tuberculosis which should have claimed her life, the details of life in hospitals and sanatoriums and the impact it had on her family, are almost chilling. The Family’:s eventual moved to a ‘:new town’:, where they started life a fresh. However six years later they immigrated to Australia. A remarkable story, that is one of survival, tenacity and when it comes down to it, courage and determination to get on and live a life that would provide hope for the future. This is not your usual biographical book, as it contains such gems of imagination that it is actually awe inspiring. The gift of words is not endowed to everyone, but certainly it is an attribute that June was able to bring to each page of her memoirs. It is therefore with great pleasure that I share her life’:s story with you here. I do hope you enjoy your time spent experiencing my mother’:s journey.
