Following on from "Growing up in Grant Street" Mary describes the ups and downs of her life from 1949, when she was eleven until her wedding day in 1959. Hoping that moving to a grander home and starting at Grammar school would improve the quality of her life, she was full of optimism. However, because her parents continued to be engrossed in their own needs and had little in the way of parenting skills the fundamental problems remained and Mary did not receive the support she needed to cope with the problems of adolescence and beyond. This is a heart-warming account of how she struggled through this challenging period of her life, finding what support she could from her peer group and from other adults. Mary illustrates how she managed to use the negative aspects as well as the positive influences to prepare her for life as a young married woman.
