Growing up in Liverpool, England, Trish Ollman, as the eldest of 6 children, had to take on the responsibility of caring for her 5 siblings. Hers was a large, poor family whose parents had little to no parenting skills, meaning that in their small terraced house, it was each for themselves. At the age of 16yrs Trish eloped to Scotland to marry Ian and they had 2 Baby boys by aged 17. After 5 years of hardship (they were even homeless in the harsh British winter at one stage) and with nothing to leave behind, Trish and Ian emigrated to Australia when they were 21. Two more children were born, but life never seemed to get any easier, and with numerous careers and house moves, along with taking on the full time care of two of her grandchildren when she and Ian should have been thinking of retirement, it would be many years before Trish could finally say she was at last, content. This is one of the most fascinating Autobiographies you will ever read!! It has been said by many that you won’t be able to put it down!!
