Overview

This is a story of a young girl's life in the beautiful island of Guernsey in the Channel Islands of Britain and how it dramatically changed when the Island became occupied by Nazis during World War II.

People who are born in the beautiful Island of Guernsey are known as Guernsey Donkeys. The reason being, they can carry a very heavy load physically and mentally, they are willing to be led, but refuse to be pushed, and they are very, very stubborn and are proud of it.

With all this in mind, at the end of the German occupation of our Island I painted on canvas what I thought was a fair indication of how we Islanders felt, and so am using it as the cover for my book. The painting was entitled "The Donkey did not Yield".
