An autobiographical account by Naomi Sim starting with her childhood spent with her sister and mother, living with her aunts in Edinburgh (and periodically in Bedford) and the summer holidays spent in the country, helping on the local farm. She describes her first meeting with her husband Alastair, falling in love with him at the age of 12, and follows their years together during and after the war covering her role as his closest adviser: vetting scripts, working through his lines with him and sparking new ideas. She recounts her difficult pregnancy when their daughter Merlith was born and tells of the other - unofficial - children of the family, including the young actor George Cole.
