From the cover: “This wholly delightful first novel introduces Jim and Lily Teasdale who live in a mining village in Northumberland. The time is 1939; their house is condemned, and a move to a new council estate is in the air. Meanwhile it is a happy, bustling world in which they live. For Rich and Alan, their sons, there are the adventures and scrapes they share with their friends, and the day-to-day dramas of their Primary School life; for Jim and Lily, the social activities of the Miners’ Institute; for all of them, the comings and goings of their cheerful and enormous clan of relations. The highlight of the family’s year is the Miners’ Picnic — thek one day together by the sea.
