Sheena Wilkinson, author of Star by Star, is writing one postcard each month to a woman who influenced her, inspired her, helped her – and the postcard is her thank you. They will appear on our blog on the 14th of every month, right up to the end of the year! To follow them all, check in on our blog and on Twitter under #StarByStarThankYou
This month I want to thank my two wonderful grandmothers, Rae Pleasants (1918-1997) and Frances Wilkinson (1908-2004). These women gave me so much throughout my childhood and young adulthood — their time, their love and their interest. The older I get the more I realise what I have inherited from them both, and how much we all owe the stoical and sometimes pioneering women of their generation.
I’d love to hear about readers’ wonderful grandmothers! #StarByStarThankYou
