Críticas:

She certainly writes a cracking tale for her descendants. Her rags-to-riches history is as gripping and warming as such tales always are. ('.a refreshing, energetic, and honest book which, above all, makes us feel we have met the writer and found her to be lively, interesting and opinionated.')

IRELAND ON SUNDAY ('More than just another rags-to-riches tale, this gives a real and compelling insight not only into her life and how it shaped Britain's favourite mother figure, but also into a past which will seem completely alien to many.')

BLACKPOOL GAZETTE ('.moving and compelling.')

CARLISLE NEWS AND STAR ('a remarkable story, skilfully told.')

Reseña del editor:

It is no secret that happiness was spread a bit thinly in Claire Rayner's far from easy childhood. She was born in Stepney, East London, in the early thirties during the Depression and was evacuated during the war. She chose nursing as a career, lying about her age in order to enrol as a cadet in the Epsom Cottage Hospital in Surrey, after which she studied at the Royal Northern, winning their gold medal for achievement. Thus began a lifetime's passion for proper medical care for all, a passion that has made her one of Britain's most important and successful campaigners. She is a patron of more than sixty social and charitable organisations.

But it is as advice columnist extraordinaire that she is most famous. A career that began in 1963 on Hers magazine was followed by columns in The Sun and later the Sunday Mirror. At one point she was receiving 1000 letters a week. Working from home, with six secretaries, she read ever single letter that came to her.
