Mavis Jameson Rukin

Mavis Jameson Rukin was born in Chorley in 1933 and grew up in Leyland during WWII. For the last fifty years, she has lived in Kenilworth in Warwickshire. Having four children over twenty years kept her busy, until she became a mature student at Fircroft College in Birmingham in 1991. There, an argument with another student sowed the seeds for Someday We'll Understand. But it gathered dust when she took full time care of her handicapped grandson after the death of his parents. Many years later, and after much nagging from her family, her first book is complete.


  • Someday We'll Understand


    When prompted by colleagues to answer questions on what life was like living through the war, Mavis didn't realise what extensive knowledge she had hidden away. She was 'a walking history book', and this is her story.
