A very touching and moving memoir. Full of stories to take you from tears to laughter this memoir is a piece of social history too from the times of the mining towns in the north of England through to the current day. A remarkable woman who tells her story with wit and charm.

Synopsis

Worthless by Marilyn Hardy

The former mining town of Stanley lies only twenty minutes drive from the beautiful cathedral city of Durham. Yet the two are worlds apart. Marilyn Hardy recounts in touching detail the trials of growing up in this impoverished mining town and her life-long struggle to find happiness, from her troubled relationship with her undemonstrative mother.
