About this Item

Hardcover. 432 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.1in.Having been born at the tail end of a large family my grandparents died when I was still young and my parents died when I was in my early thirties. In later life, apart from a few anecdotes I realised that we had a family history void, we had lost the opportunity to learn about their lives, their joys, their trials, their history - where did they meet, what was their everyday life like, two world wars and a depression must have thrown up some dramas, some tragedies, some excitement, it was all gone and we were left ignorant and wondering. So I decided to record the patchwork quilt of our lives in the hope that some day our children and grandchildren may read, enjoy and perhaps understand the forces that shaped our lives and made us what we were. In doing this we found that we had more laughs than tears, (although there was plenty of both) we are rich in family and friends, and that there is a certain kind of honour in being an ordinary working man!! Read this book, you will not only find it interesting, funny with laughs aplenty, but unlike any autobiography you have ever read. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this title

Synopsis:

Having been born at the tail end of a large family my grandparents died when I was still young and my parents died when I was in my early thirties. In later life, apart from a few anecdotes I realised that we had a family history 'void', we had lost the opportunity to learn about their lives, their joys, their trials, their history - where did they meet, what was their everyday life like, two world wars and a depression must have thrown up some dramas, some tragedies, some excitement, it was all gone and we were left ignorant and wondering. So I decided to record the patchwork quilt of our lives in the hope that some day our children and grandchildren may read, enjoy and perhaps understand the forces that shaped our lives and made us what we were. In doing this we found that we had more laughs than tears, (although there was plenty of both) we are rich in family and friends, and that there is a certain kind of honour in being 'an ordinary working man'!! Read this book, you will not only find it interesting, funny with laughs aplenty, but unlike any autobiography you have ever read.
