Spotlight: Nancy by William Kenneth Jones

This story should appeal to all those who tried to do what they thought was right. It tells of one such effort made by a person named Nancy – the main character of this story. We first meet her in 1909, when she leaves the protective time of childhood and enters the perilous years leading up to adulthood. We follow her life through a time when it appears to have “neither joy, nor love, nor light, nor certitude, nor peace, nor help from pain” (to borrow a phrase from the poet, Matthew Arnold). However, as we follow her life, we hope that she will find her way to things better. Life can only be a journey of hope.

The setting of the story is in and around the inner-Manchester district of Angel Meadow. The history of this area symbolizes Nancy’s life: an idyllic beginning, then an unfortunate decline followed by a slow and painful struggle to emerge from deep adversity.



About the Author

For William Kenneth Jones, a long and varied history has conferred a wide variety of experiences: these arising from a period in the Royal Marines, the Australian Army, worldwide travels, employment as a vehicle design engineer, then an Admin Manager in finance and computing – along with many etceteras.

In addition, obtaining a University degree covering an extensive range of subjects provided many ingredients for an active imagination, which, among other things, William exercises by writing about fact and fiction – as indicated in the books he offers.
