Angela Norris' memoir, Dancing to the Beat of the Tide, tells the story of one girl's growing up in a small sleepy seaside town in the sixties and seventies, against a vibrant background of music, fashion and the emerging disco era. As a child growing up in the Knott End and later nearby Pilling, on Lancashire's breezy coast, Angela enjoyed an idyllic childhood, playing on the beach, riding ponies and going out for tea. As disco fever swept the country in the early seventies, she and her friends thought they were pop fashion princesses in their hot pants, ready to dance to the music of T.Rex. Angela then goes on to explore life at secondary school and reflects back on reading Jackie magazine, dispensing its wisdom like a big sister. Not to mention listening to Rod Stewart after school, as he grinned from his poster on the bedroom wall. Whilst Angela remembers her childhood, she also introduces readers to a shy blond-haired boy who becomes pivotal to Angela's story... Dancing to the Beat of the Tide will appeal to fans of memoirs and also those who have a local interest in Lancashire. Angela's work will also be enjoyed by those who grew up in the sixties and seventies and would like to look back on the society at the time.
