Only a Yorkshire Lass is an account of a woman born in South Yorkshire in the 1950s. It follows her life from birth to her late fifties, events which occur in her hometown and in many other countries of the world. It details the high and low points of her life, the people she has met and the people who shaped her destiny for better or worse. It is a story full of emotion, joy, happiness, sadness, anger, hope and despair. It keeps the reader wondering and waiting for the next chapter and what will the outcome be. It also forces the reader to look at their own life and both sympathise and empathise with the writer’s different situations.

In parts, it is humorous and will bring a smile to the reader’s face and in others, one can’t help but shed a tear for the writer.

It is a book that will appeal as there is always light at the end of the tunnel.

Andrea is divorced with two grown-up children. She now lives in Hammamet with her Tunisian fiancé. Andrea is an English language teacher for foreign students and has worked in the UK and Spain. She currently lives in Tunisia and is now concentrating on her poetry and the sequel to Only a Yorkshire Lass!

    Only A Yorkshire Lass by Andrea Dridi is the autobiography of the author’s life. It is a compelling read.
    Andrea Dridi writes with clarity and honesty. Her writing is more like reading a letter from a friend than reading through a book.
    Money does not bring happiness. Andrea Dridi has had a life that has ebbed and flowed. She has known times of poverty and times of plenty. Her life has certainly thrown up challenges. She talks openly about her abortions; suicide attempts and struggles with mental health.
    Only A Yorkshire Lass was an engrossing read. I read it in just one sitting. Andrea Dridi is a Yorkshire lass who has widely travelled but who always returns to her roots. Yorkshire is seen as God’s own country so it is no wonder there is a pull.
    I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
