About this deal

An Ordinary Life is a sometimes gritty, sometimes heartbreaking, and sometimes uplifting story of a woman who has to live with her choices for her whole life. They state that all three of these models have run into administrative problems which seem likely to be solved only when there are more resources and when health and social service administrators can work together in a more coordinated way. In all this, she gives birth to a wonderful baby boy, born out of wedlock and shunned by her mother.

The consequences of Molly's choices would set her life on the path that it took for the rest of her life. Far from being the naive, silly young girl that many (including her mother) take her for, Molly is astute, and in many ways, wise beyond her years. From this learning we have also produced three factsheets to help families find out what support is available to them and a Need to Know information sheet for policy makers. But, then I guess, to Molly and millions of others during the war it probably was just An Ordinary Life. I felt emotionally connected to the protagonist, Molly, and by the concluding pages she felt like a good friend.The number of people who have been moved from mental handicap hospitals to alternative accommodation in the community has been tiny. Perfect Daughter’, ‘My Husband’s Wife’, ‘The Girl in the Corner’, ‘The Things I Know’ and ‘The Day She Came Back’ have sold millions of copies across the globe. This is a story that brings out all the emotions and one of the few books that made me shed a few tears.

Many children and young people with complex health needs, dependent on medical technology are unable to do ordinary things like going to the leisure centre or visiting friends or family. There was a time when I used to think there was nothing worse in life than being “ordinary” (whatever that meant). Molly wormed her way into my heart as I celebrated her successes, cried with her at her heartbreak, held my breath when she was in danger, and took pleasure in her joy. And then things change when Geer introduces Molly to her brother Johan and the two fall instantly in love!Set in an era when massive social reform altered attitudes to sex and sexuality, marriage, equality and environmental issues beyond recognition, this heart-warming novel imparts hope that it’s never too late to bridge the generation gap and heal the wounds of the past. Amanda Prowse brings to us yet another powerful story of first love, loss, war and the endurance of a woman through all of this.

This is a book that is full of the author’s trademark warmth and it’s a story of the sacrifices made by women when society and circumstances left them no choice. Working in Blackpool, Nottingham, West Sussex and Gloucester we gathered learning and examples of best practice for our free downloadable guide 'Children and Young People with Complex Health Needs - a one-stop booklet for families'. The authors of this paper came together to study the development of comprehensive local residential services for mentally handicapped people. Lying alone on a trolley in a corridor, unable to imagine whatever might come next, able to think only about what had gone before: each step, each breath and each day that had led up to that point in time. A person that you’re meeting for the first time will take this small bit of information about you based upon your response and use it to formulate a universal sense of who you are and how much you matter in the world.The last Science Crazy club was all about how catapults worked and so we made some fun catapults and had fun testing them. London: newcomers arrive daily on British shores seeking a fresh start, new opportunities, or simply the chance of a different life. I thought this book was going to be historical fiction focused on wartime but it was so much more as 70 years of Molly's life filled the pages.
