ByIsobel Jackson Sharkey

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The new book from the formerly least verbal Zealot, Issy Jackson Sharkey, the autobiography of her quietly extraordinary life. Through the untimely deaths of two husbands, from a childless life of teaching to being a creatively rich step mother of 6, it's a story worth telling and definitely a story worth reading. "What if I had been adopted by a different couple? What if I'd become closer friends with a certain boy in my year group at school? What if I'd gone to a different university? What if I'd had children? What if John hadn't died? What if Dougie hadn't died? What if I hadn't looked at a local group on Facebook one evening in January 2012? What if I'd got round to buying that pet unicorn? What if I'd decided that giving up a teaching career was too rash? What if my house hadn't sold so easily? The list of "what ifs" could go on. "An autobiography of a confirmed child-free RE teacher turned artist-seamstress and step mother of 6. "
