About the Book

It is February 1947 in post-war London when four-year-old Trish Smithers and her younger sister, Debbie, are abandoned by their mother at an orphanage. After they are eventually adopted by an Anglican minister and his wife, the sisters lead a sheltered life in a quaint country village—until tragedy strikes again. As Trish struggles to overcome life’s hurdles, she must balance her protective nature for her younger sister with their need for a secure future. Her relationship with her loving mentor—Aunt Tina, the village postmistress—is invaluable as she encounters life's harshest lessons. As Trish continues on her coming-of-age journey into womanhood, she experiences a close call with the underworld through an unfortunate love choice. While living alone in London as a young, naïve widow, Trish transitions into a confident and vivacious lawyer who learns how to succeed in a man’s world. But will she find a way to persevere through the tough times to smash the glass ceiling and ultimately influence history? Don’t Cry for Me, Aunt Tina is the tale of an orphan’s coming-of-age journey as she overcomes several hurdles to transform into a talented attorney who must claw her way to the top.
