After describing in detail living in a small English village, Patricia goes on to relate an incident involving her father in World War II in which she secretly listens to him talking to his friend, Jim, after the war had ended.
She was nearly twelve years old. What she heard was so shocking and she was so traumatised that in the morning it had all been forgotten.
Now known as ‘Repressed memory’, it surfaced in 1974 as an audio visual phenomenon in her mind. She was treated as having a mental illness, and describes how it affected her.
