Like so many people who grew up not knowing their parents, it becomes something of a life’s journey to discover who they were, what kind of personality they had or anything that could explain one’s own personality traits. This book covers the human conditions of a broken bond between mother and child, the First World War, PTSD, and my discovery of my belonging to an important Scottish Clan. The fact that my mother never bonded with her own mother was perhaps the reason she fell for a smooth talking, well-educated man 20 years older than herself, who flattered her, made her feel special, but carefully concealed his own damaged personality. So, I start my journey with the birth of my mother. If there is such a thing, then my young mother certainly chose an unfortunate time to be born.

Diane Catchpole nee Macdonald was born in Dunfermline, Scotland, in 1941. Her mother died in 1944. Brought up by English grandparents, Diane went on a two-year family visit to Africa in 1947. She got married in 1961 and spent two years in Malta. With her second husband, she moved to Suffolk and had three children. Her writing consists of a book called Diane Who?, which is not published. She joined a friendly scribbler’s group but found that the genre of fantasy was not for her—ordinary life was rich enough. And so she embarked on a voyage of discovery.
