Starting Over Summary

Starting Over by Jack Sheffield

'Wry observation and heartwarming humour in equal measure' Alan Titchmarsh

It's 1952. Lily Briggs arrives in Ragley, ready to begin her first school year as a teacher at the village school. There to welcome her is John Pruett who, after his years in the war, has settled into the role of headmaster. Tom Feather, the local bobby, is also on hand to make her feel at home.

But Lily has a secret lurking in her past that threatens the new life she's trying to build. Can she move forward and begin to love again?

Jack Sheffield invites you to travel back in time. Back to the days when owning a television made you the envy of the neighbours, Woolworth's still had pride of place on the high street and the village panto was the height of entertainment... A beautifully crafted novel, filled with characters that will feel familiar to anyone who has spent time in an English village.

About Jack Sheffield

Jack Sheffield was born in 1945 and grew up in the tough environment of Gipton Estate, in North East Leeds.

In the late 70s and 80s, he was a headteacher of two schools in North Yorkshire before becoming Senior Lecturer in primary education at Bretton Hall near Wakefield. It was at this time he began to record his many amusing stories of village life. He lives in Buckinghamshire.
