In twenty stories and short vignettes, divided into chronological chapters, June Barraclough shares her memories of West Riding in the 1930s and 1940s. School lessons, playground games, her family life and love letters from boys, are all seen through the eyes of a child, Jill Brook. The triumphs, fears and pleasures that a child experiences up to early adolescence will strike a chord with readers in this enchanting book. Partly autobiographical, the events and people are remembered by June Barraclough in clarity and detail.
