About the Book

This story describes the development of a child from a poor, working class background in a coal mining village into a confident teacher in London. Taking the path of leaving home, living in France and studying for five years to achieve her primary goals in life, she faces a choice: whether to marry and leave both her profession and her family for a new life in the Middle East, or whether to stay on her career path in the UK. Although this decision was difficult to make, she hopes that the job which awaits her will provide some continuity as she adapts her social self to a new culture and a new family and geographical environment.
