A sincere and honest account of the relationship between Shelia Hancock and her husband John Thaw. It provides a fascinating look at the inequities and functioning of the film and entertainment industry. An interesting and thoughtful read.

Very enjoyable book set just post WWII to present day. It moved me on several occasions. Very good first novel

Not my usual choice of a read, but lent to me by my octagenarian neighbour as we were talking about Suilven (I've seen Edie and there wasn't enough Suilven in it for me). I probably know SH mostly from I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue to be honest, and my friend always describes her as 'married to John Thaw' which gets my goat a bit. Anyway, I romped through it, and enjoyed her down-to-earth sense about pacifism, her way of getting people to talk and her education work - all of which was news to me. I also marvelled at her pain management. Her courage is inspiring, and I'm glad lockdown helped her find nature, even if it did quickly turn Hitchcockian. Thank goodness she can laugh through her rage and age.… (more)

Moving story of Sheila Hancock's coming to terms with the death of her husband, actor John Thaw and the way she coped.
