The Hopkins family embark on the biggest adventure of their lives...

Billy Hopkins' Going Places is a fictionalised autobiography of family life in 1950s Manchester and Kenya. Perfect for fans of Lyn Andrews and Nadine Dorries.

'Going Places is the story of a family dealing with their dreams, new challenges and heartaches, and is sure to capture the imagination of all readers' - Huddersfield Daily Examiner

It's 1950, and when Laura and Billy Hopkins return to Manchester from their honeymoon, they're in seventh heaven despite the austerity that has been going on since World War II. But the euphoria gradually evaporates and they settle into a penny-pinching existence on Billy's teaching salary, as babies and bills appear with alarming regularity. When Billy spots an advertisement for Education Officers in Kenya, it sounds like the answer to all their prayers, despite worries about the Mau Mau rebellion and the omnipresence of dangerous creatures. After much family debate, Laura, Billy and the junior Hopkins set off to Nairobi on a BOAC Argonaut and start on the biggest adventure of their lives...
