Drawing on the author's memories of her own childhood, this book presents an account of Annie Sutton's growing up in a Midlands village during the years before the Second World War. Peopled with Annie's parents, her much-loved if sometimes bossy brother Tom, and three grown-up sisters, it captures Annie's child's-eye view of the world.
