True stories about growing up in the North
You’ll love the hilarious tale about the time Ronnie and his mates got drunk at the church wine and cheese party – and they were only nine years old; and his moving tribute to the women at Corah’s sewing factory … who risked everything to show solidarity with the coal miners, on the day the Great Strike ended.
Some of the stories will make you laugh out loud, others will bring you to tears, but all of them are guaranteed to give you enormous pleasure.
