ME MYSELF AND IPaperback (172 pg)

Margaret Edwards’ autobiographical work charts her life in the terraced streets of Leeds in the 1930s through her life in Nottingham and Skegness and on to her retirement in Doncaster in the 21st Century. A child with a disabled mother in a family run by a taciturn, stern but ultimately wise grandmother, Margaret tells a fascinating true story of a life full of tragedy and triumph; death, divorce and family secrets.
This is a full life, trying to hide her secret but always striving to improve and prove herself. After being sent to work in a textile factory at the age of fourteen Margaret worked hard to achieve the qualifications that gave her the opportunity to work with children and young people with special needs. It was a job that she loved and threw herself into.
Margaret’s book is a social history, recorded by one who saw events from an ordinary person’s view.
