Anne Beer Autobiography – My Life on a Cliff Edge (paperback)

Anne Beer turned 80 at the end of November 2020. She is a bright and sprightly lady always ready with a quip and a pun. Not so long ago she was at a pretty low ebb in a life which has seen its fair share of ups and downs.

You can read all about the highs and lows of her long life in this book which is the second book related ‘tick’ off her bucket list this year.

The first was seeing the publication of Inspiration, a collection of short stories, and this was her other literary ambition; to publish her life story.

It includes a number of B&W and colour photos but very intentionally none of her first husband. You will know why she doesn’t want to commemorate him when you read the book.

  1. Liz Shakespeare

    This beautifully written autobiography describes a life which appears, at first, quite ordinary. However, it soon becomes apparent that through a mixture of misfortune and a determination to be true to herself, Anne Beer’s life has contained some most extraordinary incidents. Her unusual outlook on life shines through in a prose style that is both direct and engaging; the book is a compelling read and I highly recommend it.

  2. Christine Lovelock (verified owner)

    This is a fascinating book, and definitely (see above) a compelling read. What an amazing life Anne has had, and how resilient she has been! Sometimes real life is far more interesting than fiction, and Anne’s writing is so good that you feel you are with her as the story of her life unfolds. This book will also be interesting to anyone who knows and loves the North Devon countryside that has played a big part in her life. I thoroughly recommend it.

  3. Gillian Luck (verified owner)

    This book is amazing and written by an amazing lady! Anne’s memory is extraordinary; her first memory being at the age of two! Anne recently turned 80 years old and this book is her life story, and each page needs to be read! Anne’s experiences through her life would make ‘your hairs curl’ by the many unhappy, disastrous and happy times she had, and it’s possible to feel each one.

  4. John Groome

    A good read details her life events over the years Real life experience covering 75 years Difficult to put down .Highly recommended

  5. M Smoldon

    This is a well written book, an excellent and compelling read. Ann writes with some humour which helps to balance out the trials which she has faced, – a remarkable lady. Highly recommend.

    I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Anne & her beautiful companion Ellie on the beach at Hele Bay last summer. So after speaking to her and finding a little out about her, she told me she had written a book and I was compelled to go out and buy it.
    Anne you made me cry and laugh throughout your life story, what a life you have endured but your strength, courage & determination throughout has been an absolute inspiration.
    I hope you have found your ‘happy place’ because my word ….if someone deserves to be happy… it’s you ❤️
