Meg was born at the start of the Great Depression. Surrounded by poverty and unemployment she grew up in the gritty reality of a butchers shop in a pit village in the North East of England. The youngest child, she was hemmed in and at the same time ignored by the rest of her family. From her earliest years she escaped into imaginary play and writing poetry. This book is a must for readers of historical memoir and for those who enjoy a nostalgic glimpse into past working class lives. It takes the reader through Meg’s schooldays, the war years and the start of her working life. As the world opened up after the war year restrictions she spread her wings and found fun, her own Prince Charming, and her happy ever after dream.
