by Pam Bayfield
It is sixteen years since Pam wrote her autobiography From Ochre to Azure Blue, telling about the first part of her life. She began writing in a diary in 2006 after her mother became ill and given a feeding tube, in a nursing home. To balance her sadness, she began minding her eight-month-old granddaughter, Sofia who brought so much joy into her life. To compound her unhappiness, her husband Garnet died in 2007, followed by her mother six months later. Pam continued her diary, putting down her innermost thoughts and it became cathartic for her.
Sofia was the light of her life at this sad time and so her story for the last 11 years is written in this book. We are introduced to her other four granddaughters along with new partners for her sons. She has now found happiness at the War Vets which she moved into nearly three years ago.
Pam has been a prolific writer, having written 12 books in 20 years. Will this one be her last?
