Patchwork is a story about Connie being born, growing up and growing old. It is about her thoughts and aspirations. It dips in and out of social issues of a working class family in the 50s and 60s. Exploring inside her own private world, she discovers the photograph of a boy she doesn t recognise and then proceeds to unravel her father s secret past, which has lain undisturbed for over a hundred years.Within this mature and thought provoking biographical portrait and view on life, Connie reflects in a compelling way, interspersed with excerpts of delicious poetry. The book is illustrated with delightful glimpses of her past life, filled as it was with moments of extreme sadness but also with bursts of joy, creating a living patchwork of emotion and making the reader wish for more....
