The story behind the dedication
‘For Jeannie McCombie, who dreamed of more…’
Jeannie was my nana – she grew up in a poor family in a rural part of Scotland. Because her mother died young, Jeannie had to bring up her brothers and sisters, then her ailing father and her own children. This bright, warm, fiercely smart woman never got the chance to fly, to discover what she could have been capable of. I’d love to know what her future would have looked like, if her circumstances had been different!
