Book Launch: Time for a Change by Mary McClarey
Thursday 27th September 18:30 - 19:30 at Belfast
The book's protagonist, Teresa, is seventeen when the story, set in Belfast and Derry during a period of civil unrest ( between 1969 & 1979) , begins. She is alone when her family emigrate to Australia, leaving her in the care of her aunt.
Teresa, choosing a career in nursing, comes face to face with situations of social and physical extremes which are relentlessly challenging and unusually difficult, at times more reminiscent of nursing in the first world war than Britain in the `swinging sixties'.
Whilst the story involves friends, fun and romance, there are also darker moments and reading this book offers a unique insight into the lives of ordinary people living as normal a life as they can manage, at that time.
