Claire Boley

I was born in Devon during the second world war. After the war, my parents and I moved to Buckinghamshire where I lived until I was nineteen, when I left home to train as a nurse.

Now retired, I spend my spare time writing articles for various magazines. I also run workshops for hand spinning and I have written a book on the subject. This is my first novel.

I share my life with my husband Terry. I have a son - Quinton Winter, who is a freelance illustrator/artist.


About Book


How ready are you for that?

How would you deal with becoming a parent before
you've left school?

One thing's for sure, you can't unmake babies. A fact that's borne in on Peter Knight and Samantha Smithson, sixth formers at the South East Comprehensive in Deptford, living at a time when many parents are still of the old
school and pregnancy outside marriage carries a stigma.

Having to face their parents, their school friends, teachers and gossip is only
the beginning. Pete's plans for university are scotched as he must seek
work and accommodation suitable for a young family. And all
the time he still wants to have fun, with ‘friends' quite
happy to tempt him to do it.

As for Samantha, abortion is no easy option. Yet as her health and
her faith in Peter goes up and down, she may have
to think the unthinkable.
