Explore a gentler era, with traditional family gatherings for birthdays, Bonfire Night and Christmas, when Harold Wilson's 'white heat of technology' was yet to arrive in Norfolk.
“I never intended to write a book. It began as a short story, but I soon realised that I had so much material and that my Grandparent's and Mum and Dad's stories would be lost if I didn't write more. It flowed from there. I can't quite believe that the book has been published. It is very exciting to see my memoirs in print." Janet Collingsworth.
“This book is a fascinating insight into our childhood, evoking memories of events I had completely forgotten. It is a joy to read, in fact I couldn’t put it down. How the world has changed since the times we enjoyed such simple pleasures.” Wendy Reynolds – Janet's sister.
"Jan's first book is an absolute joy to read." Derek James, Eastern Daily Press
