Product Description

Book Description

From the author of The Hills Is Lonely

Book Description

Lillian Beckwith takes us back to her childhood; to the years before the Second World War, when her father ran a small grocer’s shop in a Cheshire town. It was typical of so many corner shops – the shops that are now more and more becoming just a memory, overwhelmed by redevelopment and the march of the supermarket. The corner shop where customers were known, often friends, people, not just faces at a checkout point, where shopping was gossipy, unhurried. A shop full of remembered smells of childhood: soft soap, aniseed balls, bacon and tea. A shop that is brought to life by the acute, affectionate memories of the little girl who grew up in it.

I was particularly pleased to find Lillian Beckwith's books processed for Kindle. Always among my most favourite books as they take me back in time to the Hebrides in such a unique and unmissable way. Somehow I had sadly missed her early life autobiography 'About My Father's Business' and so it was such a wonderful surprise to find this on Kindle too. Equally enjoyably written as the other books and so good to discover more about Lillian Beckwith (Comber)herself.

This is quite different to Lillian's usual stories and seems to be a straight biography. It is so authentic in its reporting.
