Content

This is a true story. 
What is the ultimate price of success? In 1924, swimming superstar Hilda James was a dead cert for the British Team at the Paris Olympics.
Her family had other ideas.
This is the account of a World Champion who suddenly found that her ultimate challenge was to pull her life back together after her dream was cruelly shattered forever.
Hilda wasn't about to bow down to anybody and broke away, finally achieving full emancipation.
A social history of life in South Liverpool plus the story of Parkgate Baths on The Wirral provide the early background for this extraordinary book.
The final chapters are set against the backdrop of life as a celebrity crewmember aboard Cunard's first purpose built cruise liner, Carinthia.
