Price of Decency book
Written by Lee Cox
A fictionalised true story of a farmer’s daughter Mary Jane Smith from Drongan in Ayrshire who disappeared every couple of years. She went to the Carlisle area to give birth to 9 illegitimate children who she then boarded out. The story takes us to Cumbria and Islay. It was researched by two of her great granddaughters and was written by a retired teacher. While much of it is imagined, there is enough DNA evidence to support the basic facts. She was a most unusual lady with a most unusual life style.
Contains adult themes.
It is self-published and is good quality with colour illustrations.
