This is a memoir, recording life in the 1950s and 60s. It highlights the pivotal moment that Lyne’s mother, Gloria left their father, Harry and 3 daughters for another man. The trials of finding a suitable housekeeper to take care of the house and the children. Lyne’s involvement in the Methodist Church, Edithvale Life Saving Club and Primary School. It shines a light on the lack of guidance and mental assistance on offer at this time and the fact that issues were not discussed with children, even if it was to have great impact on them. For all the trauma that Lyne suffered as a young girl (she was 5 years when her mother left), she grew up to be a happy and well-adjusted child, with a great deal to offer to the world.
