Summary
"150 Station Road, Wheeldon Mill, a short stride across the Chesterfield Canal in the heart of Derbyshire, was home to the Nash family and their corner shop, which served a small mining community with everything from Brasso and Dolly Blue to cheap dress rings and bright sugary sweets. But just as this was no ordinary home, theirs was no ordinary family. Lynn Knight tells the remarkable story of the three adoptions within it: of her great-grandfather, a fairground boy given away when his parents left for America in 1865; of her great-aunt, rescued from an Industrial School in 1909; and of her mother, adopted as a baby in 1930 and brought to Chesterfield from London."--Front flyleaf of book jacket.
