What in­spired me...

The People's Friend - - Short Story By Alison Carter -

Some­times it’s the mun­dane de­tails of ma­jor his­tor­i­cal events that are fas­ci­nat­ing. I wanted to mark the sign­ing of the Ar­mistice with a story, and I won­dered how it was done, and where, and with whose pen! Was there some­body mak­ing cof­fee? What or­di­nary peo­ple – there are al­ways or­di­nary peo­ple some­where in the back­ground – helped make peace hap­pen? This story came out of my imag­in­ings.
