Walking Over Eggshells by Lucinda E Clarke is our Book of the Month for August 2017.
This book will make you laugh and cry and hopefully inspire others who did not have the best start in life either. All names have been changed to protect both the guilty and the innocent – and that includes the author as well! An autobiography that tells the story of a mentally abused child, who married a “Walter Mitty” clone. They moved from England to Kenya, from Libya to Botswana and on again to South Africa. It took all her courage to survive in situations that were at times dangerous, sometimes humorous, but always nerve wracking. She met royalty, hosted ambassadors, and won numerous awards for her writing and television programs. From climbed over garbage dumps, fended off bailiffs, and coped being abandoned, she admits to being the biggest coward in the world, but her survival instincts kicked in and she lived to tell her story.
