Choose: Snakes or Ladders

The 1950’s – sex, drugs and rock and roll, but not in the small towns of Australia. This is a coming-of-age saga of a young girl brought up in a punitive sect rigidly enforced by her Aunt Charity. She escapes to a typist job in the city – a step to fulfilling her dreams of being a lady. She is hampered by deep fears of hell and punishment, and utter ignorance of the facts of life. There were lots of jobs, clothes and wealth in the cities, but still men reigned: they desire and decide, while women love and serve. Miss Mitty Bedford knew the outside world through Hollywood movies at the local Pictures, only to find, when her real life starts, that movies don’t tell the whole story. Hints of family secrets undermine her determination. A stalker’s attack clashes with her newfound joy in sensual self-discovery inspired by a crush on her boss, and her love for kind, average Col. She writhes between shame, repentance and joy. Mitty is desperate for liberation, independence and success. She also needs love. What does Mitty choose? This emotional and dramatic journey to win trust, love and independence in the 50’s, will keep readers turning the pages, as well as asking questions that still apply today.
