"An Island In Time" is a wonderful reminiscence of growing up on Washington state's Puget Sound during a most interesting, confusing and exciting decade in the 20th century, the 1940s. World War II flavored daily life for half of the decade. It was the era of: warriors, warships, rationing, Victory gardens, BB guns, sling shots, radio, 78 rpm records, big bands, black and white movies, 4-lane highways, 2-lane roads, Burma Shave signs, train travel, penny postcards, nickel Cokes and ugly cars.This is a book, which could be titled 'Everyboys Odysey Through the 1940s', about a boy who grows up throughout World War II and afterwards, making the most of the snips and snails of youth. Summers and weekends are spent in a 56.5 acre community on a small island. The "neighborhood" consists of eight houses, three farms, a dock, a general store, a church and an Indian grave island. The boy's 1890 waterfront house, with a hand-dug cellar, sits on a 12-acre farm. Neighbors and other permanent residents consist of a "different breed of cat" who seem stuck in the past, and make for some interesting stories.
