Grandfather’s Journey

St Ninian’s to Stoke


A grandfather clock stands in our sitting room. Imagine if he could talk and relate stories of all the places he has lived and all those folks who have cared for him and wound him up each week. This is history from a different angle, family life played out in front of a clock and all the tears and laughter he has witnessed.

Sarah Akhtar

Born 1947 in Leamington Spa. Traditional single sex education but always escaping into a book or writing stories. Career path into the NHS - nurse, midwife then practice nurse. Married a doctor - surprise, surprise! Now live in Stoke on Trent.

Retirement in 2004 and straight into a creative writing group, first a class I paid for and later a group which evolved from the classes.

Short stories, poems, all great fun and continually inventing stories when out and about.

Now I have a granddaughter who loves stories so, who knows where that will lead.

My book combines my interest in family history with my passion for making things up!
