Delphian Books has just republished My Mother Said… A Liverpool–Irish Memoir, for author June Hill, and we’re pleased to hear that the printed copies are selling well! This title is also available as an ebook so you can purchase and read it on your Kindle.
The immediacy of June Hill’s writing takes you right back to her 1930s childhood in Liverpool, England, as she grows up under the tough but loving eye of ‘Mam’, but largely unnoticed by her father, the ‘anonymous man’.
June’s mother struggles to raise her brood through the Great Depression, and the plucky June, the nineth out of ten children, disregards many of her mother’s warnings and stumbles through her early life, determined to make her mark.
This often humorous memoir is a piece of social history, first of working-class Liverpool and then the cultural assault of small-town life in Northern Ireland in the 1950s with her husband.
