Little Mary Hagan ‘Nightingale of the North’ is a biography written by Patricia Kirby her daughter. Mary Hagan became one of the greatest child singing stars to stem from Newcastle on Tyne in 1932. The book captures the essence of the period, the climate, the poverty and deprivation in the North in contrast to the affluence in the South. It follows Mary’s journey from rags to riches, and why at the height of her glittering career she turned her back on fame. It is a social commentary on the justice system, the education authorities, the divide between rich and poor, the Second World War, and those living in these times. Mary was recently voted by Newcastle Journal one of the most famous Geordie celebrities in the last l00 years. Patricia her daughter tells you why in Little Mary Hagan ’Nightingale of the North’.

    I'm not a big reader and I find it very difficult to keep an interest in a book. This is the first book that I have read from cover to cover in such a small time and I actually read the book in two days which is a first. The story tells of a very talented and determined child with parents that are so proud of her, that they supported her so much they let her live her dream away from the family home, Mary herself was a very gutsy child that knew her own mind and grew stronger and even more determind the older she got. It's not the rags to riches story that you would expect, it's better than that. A story written by her daughter based on true facts makes it even better because it's real. What a life Mary had, a true northern girl that gave up riches for her family in childhood and adulthood. A fascinating read that will keep you hooked and a fantastic legacy written by her daughter for her children and her grandchildren. Congratulations Mrs Paricia Kirby your an inspirational woman and... More > writer.< Less
