    'Timeless, funny and utterly absorbing' HILARY MANTEL

    In April 1925 at the age of fifteen, Jean Lucey Pratt started a journal that she kept until just a few days before her death in 1986, producing over a million words in 45 exercise books.

Never before has an account so fully, so honestly and so vividly captured a single woman's journey through the twentieth century.
