The autobiography of Hannah Hauxwell, who lived alone in a remote Yorkshire farmhouse, with neither water nor electricity. She first told her story on Yorkshire Television's award-winning "Too Long a Winter" and its sequel "A Winter Too Many".


I remember back in the early 1970's seeing this on TV & recall, being really taken with this old woman. Well, I say old woman but in truth at the time Hannah was 46 - how strange to think she was younger than I am now!!

Hannah is certainly someone you don't forget & it was lovely to re-visit her life in this lovely little book - it's inspiring, heart-warming & heart-breaking...I'm not ashamed to say I had a lump in my throat & a tear in my eye as she talked of her mother's death.

A remarkable woman indeed.
