Summary
Her letter turns into a ferocious outpouring of grief for her child, a chilling picture of London under siege (with barrage balloons to stop low-flying aircraft and a midnight curfew), and also a savage dissection of the British class system. Because, although the death of her husband tears her apart, our narrator wasn't a saint
Summary
