    Biography of Margaret, born 1926 A lively, intelligent child who grew up in Blackburn, Lancashire, going through the war years, the people she knew, her achievements and disappointments It was interesting and gritty but I would have loved to have known what happened to the people she mentioned, especially her three brothers A big disappointment that her life after her marriage was very briefly covered in a short epilogue, which is a shame as I m sure it would have been equally fascinating.
