Lemon Sherbet and Dolly Blue : The Story of An Accidental Family Paperback
150 Station Road, Wheeldon Mill - a short stride across the Chesterfield Canal in the heart of Derbyshire - was home to the Nash family and their corner shop, serving a small mining community with everything from Brasso to Dolly Blue, from cheap dress rings to Lemon Sherbets.However, this was no ordinary home and no ordinary family.
Three generations were adopted - Lynn Knight's great grandfather, a fairground boy given away when his parents left for America in 1865, her great aunt, rescued from an Industrial School in 1909, and her mother, adopted in London as a baby and brought north in 1930.
Their story spans centuries and the changing society of twentieth century Britain.
But more than that it is a story of community and of love.
Full of colour, light and life, Lemon Sherbet & Dolly Blue is a story of what it really means to be family.
