About the Author
Gwen Wilson started writing her memoir in her fifties. Essentially self-educated, Gwen worked as a motel receptionist, dental nurse and switchboard operator until at nineteen, in the exciting days of the pre-container era, a chance opportunity saw her land a role in customs clearance on the male-dominated Port Adelaide waterfront. A stable marriage and successful career in shipping and logistics followed until she retired, after which Gwen entered university for the first time and now holds a Master's degree in Electronic Commerce. Gwen and husband Bill live in Wollongong, New South Wales. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
One woman's story of all she lost and how hard she fought to survive and eventually triumph. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Most enjoyable book considering the content. Well written and a brave story with a good outcome - not all is lost.

I could really relate to Gwen's story on many levels. Her fractured and dysfunctional childhood, due to an absent father, and a mother who was battling with mental illness. She was very fortunate though that some of her neighbours, family friends, and relatives would often step in and take care of Gwen during her mother's many hospitalizations. Her older brother takes the role of "man of the house" a bit too literally, and is often too harsh with discipline. Teen pregnancy and marriage to an uncaring, abusive man, soon follows. Eventually, through a series of unfortunate and complicated events, the little boy is removed from Gwen's and her by then ex husband Colin's care, and adopted by a good family. Although Gwen's journey is full of rocky rides and ups and downs, her strength of character and adaptability always shine through. Her epilogue at the end of the book is not necessarily a happily ever after, but it is a realistic and down to earth closure. I loved this book from start to finish.
