The Valley: A Hundred Years in the Life of a Yorkshire Family

by Richard Benson
£9.99   paperback  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2015)

The Valley: A Hundred Years in the Life of a Yorkshire Family by Richard Benson The close-knit villages of the Dearne Valley were home to four generations of the Hollingworth family. Spanning Richard Benson's great-grandmother Winnie's ninety-two years in the valley, and drawing on years of historical research, interviews and anecdotes, The Valley lets us into generations of carousing and banter as the family's attempts to build a better and fairer world for themselves meet sometimes with triumph, sometimes with bitter defeat.
 
Against a backdrop of underground explosions, strikes and pit closures, these are unflinching, deeply personal stories of battles between the sexes in a man's world sustained by strong women; of growing up, and the power of love and imagination to transform lives.
