Inhaltsangabe: Andrea's story, with the help of her great, great grandmother's diary, covers three generations of the Gore family in Lancashire, England from the late 19th to the early 20th century. It covers the tragic loss of Elizabeth's son in the Pretoria Pit disaster of 1910, when 344 men and boys lost their lives and tells of the hardships faced by the family, of tragedy and loss to people already struggling with life. Further research took Andrea into the archives of the 'Bolton News' and reports of the disaster form the second part of the book. We are given an intimate glimpse into the lives, loves and tragedies of a close knit northern community. Andrea has captured the taste of the time, and we have the privilege of tasting it too, Jack bait and all.
