Raindrops in the Sun: a personal memoir by Marged Llewelyn,
This review is from: Raindrops in the Sun: A Personal Memoir (Paperback)
A sensitively written account of an unsettled upbringing in South Wales in the 1950s, owing to her parents' divorce. An eye-opener as to how life could be so distressing for a young child - all because of the stigma attached to divorce back then, making her instantly different to other children. Bullying followed and she had to draw on an in-built determination to somehow survive. Working hard at school was her way forward and her way out of the narrow-minded atmosphere of village life which enveloped her. By reaching back into the past in a humourous way, the writer's childhood is finally confronted with surprising results. An insight into 1950s life and education.
