Book Summary

Tightrope

After finding myself pregnant at seventeen, I continued my college course right up until the day my son was born. Assuming I would just go back home after the birth, I suddenly found myself in the hospital with nowhere to go after my mother informed the hospital that I could not return home. With the help of a marvellous social worker, Peter Unwin, my son and I found a home where we could build a life together. I was a single mum for many years and along the way discovered that the most important thing in life to me is being a mum. I was desperate to be a good one too. Having battled low self-esteem throughout most of my life, I found I could express myself through writing poetry. I have always enjoyed writing and now feel ready to share some of that with others. I find writing to be very cathartic. It’s like a form of therapy for me. This book covers my life experiences, thoughts and feelings in poetic form. It deals with topics such as self-esteem, death, marriage and violation with a bit of humour thrown in too. This book outlines my life, who I am and where I came from. I strongly believe that our childhood shapes us and our whole future. I am passionate about good parenting. It can be difficult at times, but we have to try and get it right. It’s a balance, like walking a tightrope. We get one chance. I hope you will enjoy my book, as there is something in here for everyone, including the mysterious Lady Isobel!

What readers say about the book🧐

This lady writes very much from the heart and gives a great insight into her life, both happy and sad times as well as times of great anguish. There is something in this book for everyone and is well worth reading. I thoroughly enjoyed it and once started, had to keep reading. Lovely book.
