<i>Jam Every Other Day</i>
Jam Every Other Day is the memoir of how the author raised six children on little more than love and good intentions.
Emma and her husband wanted a warm, busy house, full of laughter and muddy footprints and, under the leafy oaks of what was then ‘rural’ Constantia, that’s just what they got. Geese, ponies, dogs, an Oldtjorrie and a rag doll called Giblet completed the already remarkable family. After a mutually agreed separation Emma took her brood to the Knysna forest, where they continued to live the rustic lifestyle, this time without even running water!
Written in Emma’s distinctive, quirky style, the tale includes insights from her own childhood in Holland during World War 2. Along with the chaos of her family memoirs, come gems of caring advice to modern moms (like her own daughters).
