From Everton Vale to Rivington Pike

ByEdith Amy Pierce

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Most people in their late 80’s settle for an easy life. Not so Edith Amy Pierce! Something of a rapscallion in her youth, she lived through the horrors of the Second World War in Liverpool. She had to wave goodbye to her husband Harold, only four days after their marriage, and had to wait nearly four years before seeing him again. Read the fascinating story in her autobiography, From Everton Vale to Rivington Pike. After Harold’s death in 1981, she moved nearer to one of her three daughters, in Horwich near Bolton, just a short walk from Rivington Pike. She immersed herself in voluntary work in order to overcome her grief, and has continued to find many ways over the years ever since to make other people’s lives more comfortable. Later she married again, and enjoyed 10 years of life with John, experiencing a host of adventures and scrapes on their long hikes through the Lancashire countryside. Now, approaching her 90th birthday, she is celebrating life with this highly readable autobiography.
