Just as things are about to go well for fifteen year old Lizzy May Morrison, her life is turned upside down when she receives some devastating news. What will happen and how will she resolve matters when, together with her friend Joe, they uncover a troublesome secret? 

Supported by a friendship with the enigmatic Catherine Van der Hayde, there are hints of a mysterious past but her abrupt departure causes Lizzy May to make a discovery that underpins a tale of extraordinary escape, heroism and adventure. Sometimes you have to do the wrong thing for it to be right. 

This is a delightful story of an evolving romance, but not before Lizzy May has to confront her fears and seek meaning for the deeper questions of life. With an engaging manner of dialogue, this intricate novel set in the 1970s is both entertaining and refreshingly unpredictable. 

Deep, resonant and poignant My Story has the capacity to appeal to both young and older readers.

Lizzy May Morrison lives in the West Country, with her dog and many friends nearby. She is now a grandmother and used to work in education. It may not come as a surprise (when you have read these pages) to learn that she drives an ancient car and flies an even older aeroplane.

    I am not a great reader of fiction, but as this book was recommended to me, I decided to buy it and give it a go. I have to admit that I really enjoyed reading it and couldn't put it down! Although there was lots going on in the story, I found it easy to follow, and found the characters very believable. Part-way through the book, which seemed to be about a very normal teenager growing up in the country, the story took a totally unexpected turn, with no clue as to how it was going to end.
    I can thoroughly recommend the book.

    I really enjoyed My Story. A charming window on the past - no social media or mobile phones in the '70s - but the teenage narrator, Lizzy May, is a highly relatable character for contemporary young (and not so young) adults. I was drawn in to the mystery she has to uncover, but this is more than a whodunnit. Beyond the level of plot, it's also a story of self-discovery, values and the importance of forgiveness. A pleasurable "easy" read but in no way light and frothy! I loved the character of Aunty Cath and her back story...a great role model for young women.

  • Caroline Gale

    An engaging and very enjoyable tale of a teenager growing up in the 1970's. As the plot unfolds I found I was reading more and more every night, not having a clue where the story was going but needing to find out.
    My Story is a wonderful slice of simpler times, unencumbered by constant technology. A story with people and values at its heart which is as relevant to those growing up in the 2020's as it is a great little escape for those old enough to remember those days.
