As a child in the 1920s, Winifred Foley was fascinated by the reminiscences of her Great Aunt Lizzie. Born and brought up in the Forest of Dean in the 1870s, she knew the extreme of poverty, going out to work as a scullerymaid at the age of nine years old to help support her small sisters and brother. Married to a miner, she went out to California, to the gold fields, returning to her beloved Forest when her husband was dying. This is a remarkable story, spanning three generations and showing how important are strong family links and a love of the place in which they lived.
