After the heady days of the trial which released her from the care
of the State Industrial schools and succeeded in changing the law,
Evelyn returns to the same grinding poverty. And when Desmond is once
again forced to return to England to find work, 'new mammy' Jessie
increasingly takes out her frustration on the twelve-year-old Evelyn.
After a gruelling winter, the family eventually leaves for England in
search of a better life. But matters quickly deteriorate. Jessie's
relationship with Desmond becomes strained and Evelyn increasingly finds
herself getting the brunt of their criticism and dissatisfaction. Part
memoir, part social history, Evelyn's remarkable journey takes us
through her adolescence as an assistant in Woolworth's in the swinging
sixties, as a weaver in a mill in Yorkshire, and her repeated attempts
to run away. Throughout everything Evelyn's inexplicably troubled
relationship with Jessie looms large, casting a shadow over her life,
until the story's brilliant and emotional denouement.
