I was born around the same time as Sarah the portagonist in my book. This could be any woman's life born in the 1940's forward to 1980's. 'This is our Life' Join me on www.watermelonfarmersdaughter.com blog and tell your story - Growing up in the 50's, 60's and 70's. Has it all turned out the way you imagined? Was the 'Madam Bovary syndrome' of ideal romantic love we saw in the movies and expectations realised? Did you find that you alone were the ruler of your universe and a partner was 'the icing on the cake' if you found the knife to spread 'the icing' smoothly. Who or what has been 'your constant companion'?
The idealistic innocent childhood, which started on the farm during WW11 then to the sea, will draw you back in time
It is safe for a child growing up with no parental restraints – Sarah learns self-reliance, discipline and independence, which have been the education to carry her through life
Sarah’s parents are experiencing their own freedom after the end of the war
She arrives relatively unscathed but unsure about her approaching marriage – there is no alternative for a woman in the late 1950’s. The virginity she did not know she had is lost to the man she will marry
The Female Eunuch and Cleo Magazines were her awakening and education in the 1970’s -
Come with Sarah on her journey of change, in a time like no other, from radio then black and white television to iCloud from horse and sulky to travelling the world with her ever present and constant companion ‘the watermelon’
