This book was fascinating and compelling reading. Full with so many starling illustrations of the horror of life in the most difficult of times - offset by the caring, gentle and all too human nature of its principal character. One was transported into the heart of England and the simple joys and harsh perils of some of its darkest days. As a previous reviewer suggested, it would indeed make a wonderful film i the hands of an enlightened director - but it must dispense first with that apalling epilogue.
