First published in 1975, this new digital re-working of a best-selling QueenSpark book was so popular that it quickly sold out in paper form - and so did its two subsequent editions.
In this e-book edition, narrator Daisy Noakes tells her story from the age of fourteen, when she went into service. She gives us an insight into the life of a woman born and brought up in Brighton and Hove between the wars.
The autobiography covers Daisy's childhood, as one of a family of ten, living in Prince’s Road and Vere Road, and her working days in service in different parts of the town. Here she talks about the trials of wash day:
This excerpt is a special insight into Daisy’s world and is a shining example of her true grit and fortitude. Daisy documents – with humour - her inevitable trials and tribulations in the often physically demanding world that she inhabited, during her working life. A great example of an early QueenSpark Book!
