In 1971 Cherry Simmonds left the grinding poverty of Liverpool behind for a new life in New Zealand. Her troubles were only just beginning...Picking up where her bestselling memoir NOBODY IN PARTICULAR left off, this memoir finds Cherry, her husband Eric and their young son Richard on a no-frills Russian ship, sailing out to join the hundreds of Brits then leaving dreary old Britain for a new healthy life in Godzone.
With characteristic dead-pan humour, Cherry recounts their new life and its ups and downs, from dead-end jobs to adoption, house fires to running a country lodge. Fans of NOBODY IN PARTICULAR will be drawn to this new title and it will be of particular interest to UK immigrants who now call New Zealand home.
