Strong Women

Jul 26, 2023

We are joined by Sarah’s lovely and feisty English grandmother, Sheila Broderick. Sheila was ten years old when England declared war on Germany in World War II. She was evacuated by train to Wales, but unlike the Pevensie children of C.S. Lewis’ Narnia series, Sheila did not find a nice professor waiting to help spur on her imagination. Instead, she was the last child to be reluctantly taken in. From losing her father  to surviving the Blitz, Sheila’s formative years were shaped by suffering and resilience in the face of great uncertainty.
