Description
Information
When Helen Forrester's father went bankrupt in 1930 she and her six siblings were forced from comfortable middle-class life in southern England to utmost poverty in the Depression-ridden North. The running of the household, in slum surroundings and with little food, and the care of the younger children all fell on twelve-year-old Helen. She writes about her expeirences without self-pity but rather with a rich sense of humour which makes her touching account of these grim days before the Welfare State funny as well as painful.
