This is Book #2.
I asked her once why she was nicknamed Mum
“You called me that,” she said, “when you were little.”
Mum (see Wikipedia: Barbara Leonard Reynolds) came a long way in her 74 years. You’d never think that someone born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who died in Wilmington, Ohio, would have traveled so far and had so many adventures in the meantime. She went around the world three times, spent 17 years in Japan, was given a key to the City of Hiroshima, was made an Honorary Citizen by the Mayor of Hiroshima, dined with the Prime Minister of Japan, and was declared a National Living Treasure. Posthumously, she had a monument erected to her in Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park, their Ground Zero. . .
