When Augustine Jordon (Jordon to his friends) arrives in 1960s South Liverpool to begin training as a teacher, his life will change forever.This novel charts his journey from growing up in a simple South Yorkshire mining town to an eminent role as a senior teacher in a Liverpool Secondary School.It tells of his relationships, notably to Annie, the love of his life; his ups and downs; euphoria and despair in equal amounts through the years as a wild and precocious youngster to a devoted family man.Jordon is so typical that his story will surely resonate with the many who themselves have followed a similar journey through the teen years, working for a living and on to married life and parenthood.The book will bring laughter and tears in equal amounts while the emotions will be tested. However, it is the ongoing empathy with both Jordon and Annie which makes it such a compelling read.
