A North Country Maid

Front Cover
ISIS Large Print, 1998 - History - 240 pages
This touching, affectionate and funny account of what it was like to grow up in the thirties pulls no punches, but social conditions are only one part of a book about real human beings. Although continually unemployed, Mary's father comes alive as a man of fine and proud spirit, a man of intelligence, clever at school as a boy, with his own wistful longing for what he might have been if only he had the chance. Times were hard, nevertheless, his children knew many joys as well as sorrows and Mary, blessed with the opportunities he never had, gives a glowing account of these years.
