Lynn Knight's memoir tells how three generations of her family were adopted in three distinct ways. Today, it is 1865 and her great-grandfather begins his new life.
The corner shop at 150 Station Road, Wheeldon Mill in Derbyshire was run by Lynn Knight's grandmother, and for the first half of the twentieth century was at the heart of family life. Everything from bread, eggs, sweets and laundry soap could be bought there, and it was also the place where the story of three adoptions across three generations unfolded. As Lynn Knight reveals her family's story she also sheds light on a vanished world.
The reader is Barbara Flynn.
Abridged by Julian Wilkinson.
Produced by Elizabeth Allard.
