Creosote and Celery

The First of three Autobiographical Novels set in London’s East End

It was 1973 and the bomb that exploded at the Railway Station triggered a memory for Janet Foster. Taking her back in time to 1953……The Post War Years in London’s East was a tough time for families still clearing up from the blitz and struggling to come to terms with the loss of loved ones.

The Foster family and their relations in Hall Road were looking forward to the Queen’s Coronation, and were intending to celebrate with great gusto. Will Foster grinned at his family “It will be a time of great rejoicing for everyone” he said, “A time to reflect on the past and look forward to the future. As the Coronation day dawned and the celebrations began however, a different kind of struggle was to take place in Hall Road, a struggle that threatened to break hearts and tear the once close knit family apart.
