about this item

1953 and over half a decade following the war it is a good time to undertake National Service. But for Jean, the lure of working overseas means she will volunteer as a teacher with the RAF. Starting in Egypt, Jean spends the next five years (including a renewal of contract in 1956) travelling Africa and the Middle East in a career that would, as prophesised by a fortune teller at the village fete, "... seem like a holiday."Told in an engaging style A Mistress Abroad brings to life that time of optimism, with the vibrant and revolutionary 60s only a few years away, when a woman like Jean could enjoy and experience her early working life amidst the fascination of other cultures and the allure of pilots and planes.For those curious about the period or who would like, in part, to reminisce, this book will be an enjoyable read.
