SHORT BACK AND SIGHS continues the life of Margaret Rose Astbury, known to us all as Meg Hutchinson. Her childhood years was previously recalled in A PENNY DIP, however all childhoods end, and Meg's was no exception. It is often said "a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down." But not always! Within a few short years of leaving school she was to learn - as had her mother before her - the bitterness of 'medicine' can last half a lifetime.
