Tank to Tower is the story of a young woman’s transition from childhood to womanhood, through the many facets of life. It takes the reader on that journey with the writer from the heat of the Arabian desert, the dust and flies of Western Australian farmland to lush New Zealand bush and beyond. For instance how does a young bride, fresh from the city, cope with the starkly different challenges of rural life, or from having very limited culinary skills to catering for a number of healthy appetites with several hearty meals every day?

This is the record of an interesting and everchanging life full of fascinating places and of interesting but unremarkable people living full but very normal lives.

It is a story of challenge and resilience, lack and abundance, sadness and joy, and all the other ingredients that go into building a tale of ordinary people with ordinary lives that will resonate with many, perhaps encourage a few and hopefully entertain them all.

Jan Stock was born in England, but over the years, she has lived in Iraq, UK, New Zealand and Australia. Her life has been a series of new beginnings, and this book covers some of that journey, with its challenges, joys and sorrows.

Although primarily a wife, mother, grandmother, homemaker and farmer’s wife, she has also been a secretary to doctors, lawyers, corporate executives and social workers during her working years.

Retirement has brought the delight of frequent travel to the life of Jan and her husband, a pastime they continue to enjoy as much as possible.
