Norman Andrews was born in Bristol in 1934. Parts of this novel were written in 1950 when he was 16. Bits were added from time to time in the next half century throughout a busy life . It was finally pulled together in 2006 in his 71st year. He is now 72 and is working on a sequel. It is an attempt to show the devastating effect upon a child, when parents separate and leave a seven year old to the mercies of a boarding school and fostercare. It also considers the plight of women who did not particularly like children, but were expected to mother them in the nineteen thirties, forties and fifties. It is also about the frustration of women who had the ability to do important jobs, formerly reserved for men, who were prevented from continuing to do them when the war ended. There is a glimpse into the world of young love, bisexuality, violence and mental illness. For those who know Norman Andrews as a respectable middle class accountant for the past thirty years, but who will guess that much of the novel must be autobiographical, it is an attempt to show that one can survive mental illness. Like many other illnesses, it can often be cured, by time.
