By Jessie Lee Brown Foveaux

'Every day was a happy day.' This is how Jessie Lee Brown Foveaux recalls her childhood in this captivating memoir written for her fifteen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Born in the mid-West at the turn of last century, Jessie's childhood was idyllic. Her parents were far from wealthy but they were loving and Jessie and her little sister Tressie grew up safe and secure, in a pretty house with roses round the door and apples in the orchard beyond. It was a world where getting your first telephone was a major event and where every day bought its given duties: Monday was washday, Tuesday ironing day, and Wednesday and Saturday were set aside for baking bread, cakes and cookies.

But as Jessie grew older, life - as it so often does - got harder. Her beloved mother got sick and died and when the war came, Jessie's true love, Howard, was poisoned with mustard gas and he, too, passed away. But Jessie shouldered the knocks and got on with her life. She married Bill and though their marriage was far from easy she bore him eight children, on whom she lavished her care and her devotion.

ANY GIVEN DAY is her story, the story of a quite ordinary life but told with such charm and such wisdom that it has something to teach us all about life and about love.
