Based on the memoirs of Flora Dewsbury, Dear Daughter is the bitter-sweet true story of growing up in Manchester just before and during the First World War.

Not long before her death in 1993 Flora wrote her memoir and gave it to her daughter on the condition that it would not be read until after her death. At 47 pages long, the memoir contained a moving account of a difficult childhood under very different conditions to those of today.
