Yet when Sue was bringing up her own child alone, her mother was always there to help. And playing her much-loved characters Sheila Grant and Barbara Royle – although her mum wouldn’t say she was proud as such, she certainly seemed to approve. And in her mother’s final months, it was Sue she needed by her side.
The relationship with your mother is perhaps the most precious and fraught of any woman’s life. When she began writing, Sue set out to record ‘all the big things, and all the small things. Everything I wanted to tell my mother but felt I never could’. The result is a warm, poignant and often very funny memoir by one of Britain’s favourite actresses.

Honest and Entertaining
I heard Sue in various interviews discussing her book and I was not disappointed by it. (Unlike Ricky Tomlinson's) Her style is just as she is and her tales are warm and well told.
I would thoroughly recommend this book.

I am a huge fan of Sue Johnston and she is an exceptional actress who has been in many of my favourite television and film dramas. This autobiography is sensitively written, moving and honest; Sue clearly had the same insecurities and tensions in family relationships that we all have. I cannot recommend this highly enough - I listened to it twice in a row in my car on the way to work .
