Another thing that shone through was the strength of the women in the background, loyal to their man and his, at times, irrational behaviour but quietly supportive of their son (in the case of Richard's grandfather, it was his spinster aunt who gave him love and support).
This book is an insight into the raising of children over the past hundred years, how attitudes to that upbringing has changed, how adversity and ignorance could have destroyed two generations if not three. Thankfully, it did not.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
Well done Richard !
