It's Not A Boy!
Vicky Turrell
“It’s not a boy!” shouted Posty as he carried the sad news round the scattered houses in the little village of Gum. He was used to bringing bad news in the war and saw no reason to stop.
A girl had been born to a farming family who really wanted a boy. This is the voice of that little girl, now eleven years old, telling her story.
Brought up on a remote farm in Yorkshire in the 1940s and ‘50s, she shows how her birth was a bombshell to her farming parents.
Living in rural isolation, she saw and interpreted, in her own inexperienced way, all aspects of human life.
To make up for not being a boy she devised a list of things she was good at so that she could succeed and make her parents proud of her. But is her list good enough?
This story was inspired by real
events although some scenes and people have been invented for the purpose of the narrative. The language used is of its time.
Vicky will be signing copies of her book at the Georgian Tea Rooms in the Old Town on Saturday 25th November, 11am to 4pm.

Lodge Books Publishing - One for the family.
Imagine being able to read a book written by your great great grandfather, a book which tells his own story, a book with your family history in his pictures and words. You cannot do this but now is a good time to make sure your great great grandchildren can. Write your own life story and have it published privately or for public access. You can then buy just one copy, or you can buy an unlimited amount of copies any time you want. Ian Gowland did just this. The cover of Ian's book below shows family pictures on the front and on the back, what motorbike he rides, where he lives, what he likes to drink, his weekly shopping bill and how he communicates. It is a moment in time captured for those who follow him. For someone, someday, your book can be the greatest story ever told. Ian and his family can buy a copy of the book anytime and get enough change out of £10 to buy a drink while they read it. Ask about publishing a gift for those who follow you.
