PORTLAND, OR; May 26, 2022--Eva Matson was born in 1900 to a rural family in Dorset, England. It was the Victorian age. An age when women needed to use actions to have their voices heard. An age of ancient plumbing, gas lighting, and where unmentionables were never mentioned.
Through wars, through extreme shifts in public attitude, especially towards the roles of women, Eva experienced many changes in society and extreme changes in living conditions.
Eva was a somewhat unconventional woman who drove an ambulance at fifteen. She found her calling as a nurse at an early age. It was this open-minded blend of characteristics that would stand her in good stead for her life to come. A life that included, yes, a beauty contest.
It was a life filled with questions and unexpected answers. A life of joys and sadness. Of exhilaration and darkness as Eva hit London with all its risks and pitfalls, relationships, disease, and decisions—turning points in her life. Some of which she might have regretted, but some she wouldn't change for the world.
This is a story of strength, of bumps in the road, of family with all its foibles, of the values of longevity in friendship, and of deep love.
