All the Love in the Land, Alice is a granddaughter’s loving tribute to her fabulously interesting grandmother. This exceptional book is a mixture of family letters, and imagined conversations between Joan and her grandmother, Alice. As such, this is a historical treasure not to be missed.
When Joan received boxes at the death of her uncle John, she had no idea of the historical treasure chest she had just inherited. Slowly, she would discover the life of her grandmother Alice, who had taken her own life just four days before her son’s wedding. This biography has been lovingly and artfully composed. Elegantly crafted with beautiful descriptions, the reader is taken on a journey, not only of Alice’s remarkable life of reinventing herself, but of a time of history that saw so much astonishing change. What a life Alice had! Her upbringing is somewhat normal, but when she is secretly betrothed to Jerry everything changes. There is a sensitive matter that Jerry needs to attend to before he can marry Alice, so she is sent to university, and after that on a European tour – basically to keep her busy. Jerry, maybe in guilt for making her wait, bends to her wishes and pays all the bills for her privileged lifestyle. Is this the start of the end? They do marry and have two children, John and Jane. But a series of unfortunate events or maybe wrong decision making lead to a slow reduction in fortune. Alice will go from happy, singing celebrity to a business woman of ill-fortune. Was it the depression after WWI or was it simply not understanding her limitations?
