Summary:
Lillian takes us back to her childhood, to the years before the Second World War, when her father ran a small grocer's shop in a Cheshire town. It was typical of so many corner shops where customers were known and not just faces at a checkout point; where shopping was gossipy, unhurried. A shop that is brought to life by the acute, affectionate memories of the little girl who grew up in it.
