This is an auction for POSTCARDS FROM THE 20th CENTURY: A LIFETIME OF MEMORIES FROM NEW ZEALAND WOMEN, by Joyce Harrison & Mavis Boyd.

"In this absorbing book, ten New Zealand women look back on their lives throughout the 20th century. They share memories of their families and themselves:

* Enid hides in the broom cupboard to avoid the meter reader

* During the 1942 Wellington earthquake Shirley runs through the heaving night-time streets to find a doctor

* Oho helps to restore a special house on the marae dedicated to her ancestor, Hinepare, and remembers the news of her father's death during the War

* Janne discovers the mysteries of the bovine digestive system when a calf swallows her raincoat belt

"Poignant, funny and always highly readable, this collection includes stories and anecdotes about marriage, childhood, families, holidays, first loves, travel and newfound independence. The ten writers, who met during a summer writing course, are from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, and include Maori and immigrant women. Their experiences reflect those of a large number of New Zealanders, who will recognise with delight many of the events in these pages."
