About the Book

MIDGE is an autobiographic account of the life of author Marjorie Abell, chronicling her birth and early childhood, to her schooldays and the carefree adventures of youth she partook in with her siblings and friends. She remembers the loving environment cultivated by her parents, and what they went through to ensure that their family was well provided for. Readers will follow Marjorie as she grows up and faces the responsibilities brought by maturity, and the changes that occur around her and her family. Ultimately, hers is a touching coming of age story, a pristine photograph of the author’s life experiences.
