Norah came from an educated background, lost her Mum early, gained a Step Mother whom she didn't much like & married "beneath her". In the war she defied her father to join the Women's Army & marry Arthur, an older man who spent too much money at the pub. Once married, she moved every 12 months due to Arthur's jobs with an expanding family & their dogs. Homes without running water, a bathroom or electricity, serving the privileged gentry of her husband's employers. They ran their own pub with three young children, the birth of another & a miscarriage, leaving the business with big stories & bigger debts. Always scrimping but putting others before herself, she eventually settled down to enjoy her family & hobbies. She began write her "memoirs". Decade by decade. A regular, happy person, a friend, a wife & a great Mum. It gives a fascinating, honest, cheerful & nostalgic insight to the times living in Britain - for her family, friends and those who might find themselves wishing they had known Norah.
