Kit Dominoabout this book: As the birth of the British Music charts and the reign of a new queen took hold, people in the English capital were beginning to enjoy life now the war was over, rationing coming to an end and a new era dawned. But one event occurred to turn the lives of many upside down in its aftermath: the Killer Smog of London 1952. Many lives were devastated by the havoc it wrought, many died as a result of that tragic events. Every Step of the Way tells the sometimes harrowing story of how one young teenager coped when the event handed her its worst card. The book has been published to mark the 60th anniversary of that environmental disaster.
The book appeals to everyone who loves modern history by bringing to life the 1950s era through its events, music, lifestyle and social acceptances, the good and the bad that made England what it is today. It is full of social history, touching on many topics that a lot of readers today have little concept of how things really were 60 years ago. But more than that, it is also a love story, one of steely determination never to give up hope.
