    • Why Us

    Homecoming, the third volume of Jill Ashley Miller's autobiography, takes us from the author's return to civilian life in 1946 to her marriage ten years later.

    For much of this time Jill struggled to find purpose. Neither parents was able to provide moral support, nor even a settled home. Lack of education together with her own restlessness condemned her to undemanding, ill-paid jobs. While there was no shortage of men - some good-looking, some with money to spare - none offered the strength and commitment she sought in a life-time partnership.

    On the balance side, Jill made enduring friendships during these years, discovered music, and spent a memorable six months in Burma. Then, by chance more than by design, she joined the Foreign Office, where the work was serious and the companion ship congenial. And, when her path crossed that of Peter Ashley Miller - not a handsome seducer but, in his own words, 'a little fat man with glasses' - she soon realised that she had found her lynchpin.

    The story finishes, not at the end of a long and happy marriage, but with a joyful coda in which the author recounts the renewal, four years after her husband's death, of a long-vanished first love.

    This book has been researched and written by Jill (Jilly) Ashley Miller in order to raise money for NORWICH MENCAP who look after her Down's Syndrome daughter. All proceeds go directly to the charity. If you are interested in contacting the author please email Jilly on cjam@ballygate.demon.co.uk . (Hardback - ISBN 9780955088780) (The price is £10.00 POST FREE for the UK, all of which will be passed on to Norwich Mencap)
