Thea Hartleyabout this book: The Horton family invented the first birth control devices; condoms, foaming tablets and others. Tom Gordon came from poverty to build a multi million pound factory. He lived a colourful life, leaving his inheritance to his son Ron.
Ron was born into affluence and entitlement , he lived the life of a playboy, not joining the factory until he was 21. Ron didn't know how to work. He spent what he liked, left the business for others to run, and as a result was often taken advantage of. The fortune dwindled, after several years he faced bankruptcy.
This book follows the last years of Ron's life where he had lost everything. He now has a daughter, who has no inheritance. In fact, she had two parents who depend on her. She ends up married to a cruel and abusive alcoholic in a council house.
The book follows the story of survival, change and courage and emphasises the fact that some people have to fight for everything, and display a deep strength of character.
