Summary

She was only nine when her world fell apart. The struggle to understand took a lifetime.In 1960s Bristol, Susan's family was like any other with its joys and frustrations, and fierce loyalties. Then tragedy struck and left a legacy that was to last a lifetime.Susan was only nine when her mother died.

A year later she was sent away to school. She didn't want to go, and didn't understand why she had to. In her struggle to cope with an uncertain world - a world where nothing seemed to make sense any more - she pushed away the one person she loved best, her father. It wasn't until adulthood beckoned that she realised that, in order to turn their relationship around, she had to learn to love - and trust - again.

Frank and touching memoir

This is the second book of Susan Lewis growing up. It is so open and it would appear from the heart. It is a sad, funny and enlightening account of her childhood; her emotions during this time. I also enjoyed references to familiar appliances etc from my childhood.

One day at A Time

Strange Ending. i would have enjoyed it more knowing the long term outcome. Some parts dragged on a bit, but worth a listen.
