Summary
Margaret Forster presents the 'edited' diary of a woman born in 1901, who died in 1995. From the age of thirteen, on the eve of the Great War, Millicent King keeps a journal, and vividly records the dramas of everyday life in an ordinary family touched by war and tragedy. Her struggles through the upheavals of a womans life in the twentieth century, from bohemian London to Rome in the Twenties, and from two world wars to Greenham Common and beyond is a triumph of survival. In this brilliantly conceived journal, an 'ordinary' woman lives through extraordinary times in an extraordinary century.
