About Patsy Whyte

Patsy Whyte's debut autobiography, No Easy Road, recalls the earliest years of her life up until the age of 16. It is a true story, and a remarkable and frank account of her struggle to survive. "It's taken me more than 30 years to write about my experiences," she says. "Fortunately, I've been blessed with a great memory. I can still remember people and places and incidents in the clearest of detail, even although so many years have passed." A second book is planned, taking Patsy's story forward through the rest of her teenage years. It promises to be as compelling as her first.


Review by: Eileen Dick on Jan. 17, 2011 : (no rating)
This became another ´same old, same old´...not quite what I expected. I appreciate she had a horrible childhood, and ended up in care, but it was allabit disjointed, it also came to an almost abrupt ending, as if the writer had got fed up, and just closed it down, no explanation as to how she got herself on her feet, or turned her life to where she is now.What about her siblings in her later life, does she see them? Or her parents, whatever happened to the alcoholic mother? A little unfinished.
