Product Description

Product Description

Helen Wingate, in her 79th year, is a published Poet, easing smoothly into prose in this revealing account of her numerous home moves, starting in her Scottish childhood. Though non-autobiographical, her descriptions of family, domestic and world events are at times amusing, shocking, and on others, downright horrific. The constant background theme for herself, husband and children throughout, is self-motivation towards achievement, engendered through previous harsh experience. From the place of her birth, she colourfully describes dwellings from pre WW2 right up to the 21st century, from the humble to the sheer luxurious.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Digest of all homes owned or rented by an active and imaginative married couple who took thier courage in both hands on a number of occasions. Written in a way which tells the reader quite a lot about the author and her husband's attitude to life generally.
