Number One bestselling author, Meg Hutchinson, paints a loving portrait of a Black Country girlhood in her moving memoirs

One of five sisters, Margaret Rose Astbury grew up in Wednesbury during the first half of the 20th century. Despite the constant struggle to make ends meet, and the hardship and worry of wartime, life in the Black Country was not all doom and gloom. In the crowded terraced houses and teeming communal yards, there was love and laughter aplenty. With no money to spare for toys, the Astbury girls had to make their own amusement, whether it be street games or a backyard panto. With all the humour and narrative skill that have made her novels bestsellers, Meg Hutchinson paints a loving portrait of family life in a more innocent age.
