JUST ANOTHER DAY
Based on a True Story
About the Author:
Lucy Day writes about a fun loving kid, Francis Tompkins. Francis was born in 1956, growing up in the suburbs of London. She was an outgoing confident child, eager to enjoy life but as she grew, she began to realise her home-life wasn’t a happy one. When her parent’s marriage eventually falls apart, she finds herself isolated, confused and unable to know what to do for the best. She leaves home and without parental guidance, becomes involved with a man she perceives as able to understand. They later marry and have a child, Emma. However, with little money between them, pressure of work and being a new Dad all becomes too much for him. A breakdown follows but as he refuses to seek help, he slips into another life one in which the only person to blame for his predicament is Francis and this leads the relationship into one of violence. Emma never spoke of the problems in her home but drew it in a series of drawings, some of which are illustrated in this book. They show the silent voice of a child unable to change things around her. A truly heart-rending story. For every book sold in this category, we will donate monies to relevant charities on your behalf.
