Thanks JM I haven't heard of Professor Ramsland so I will see if I can find any of his books.
Thanks so much
Kylie

The book, Children of the Back lanes is one of his.  Likely my copy is with one of my younger set,  hopefully it will come back here when they have finished with it; but I'm fairly confident it covers the years when Esther's children were growing up.

This is the book I referred to
https://catalogue.nla.gov.au/Record/1619959?lookfor=author:%22Ramsland,%20John,%201942-%22&offset=17&max=21   ... don't ignore the details in the Bibliography ...  :D  usually worth following every one of this chap's references.

also of interest

Fingers crossed that one well hidden clue will be found that will be the key to opening the crack in this brickwall.
