Product Description

Product Description

Eight year old Caroline starts out on a mission to buy a loaf of bread for her mother and finds herself caught up in a dramatic sequence of events which mark the beginning of her important life lessons. Caroline’s curiosity about what happened that day sparks off her search for meaning which continues throughout her childhood and teenage years. This story is set in N. Ireland amidst an increasingly troubled political landscape and a troubled family life which is profoundly affected by her father’s developing mental illness and the consequent changing family relationships. Her mother’s mantra, ‘if you fall run on’, is a golden thread that weaves its way through the comedy and tragedy of this deeply inspirational story.

Brrrrrilliant read. I loved it from start to finish. :)) The opening chapter with young Caroline heading to the shop for "Mammy" and the adventure that it brings really grabs you and makes you want to carry on.

This is a great read and will have you asking for more. A true story that will inspire all to live life to the full and "run on". This story is the story of many Irish families Caroline Owens has written a book of joy, sadness, fear, hope, war, faith, insight. Strength weakness and love. People in 1970"s Derry will recognise this as a young girls memories of troubled times. Buy it now and enjoy the journey. You will want more. Go on give us a second helping Caroline ..

This book is a beautifully illustrative journey of a vulnerable, inquisative young girl growing up through 'the troubles', both at home and in Northern Ireland. Caroline's journey from start to finished had me hooked, I struggled to put it down, as I shared in her search for meaning. My only criticism would be that it finished...I WANT MORE!!!

Absolutely loved the book, it was very funny and sad. Caroline You definately should have been in that `O` Level class. Your an excellent writer so you need to continue your story. Your an inspiration and the only thing I`m particularly sad about now, is that Your Mami & Dadai are not around to share in your success. the book leaves me thinking; "life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but rather learning how to dance in the rain" xxxx
