About this product
- DescriptionJanet Bodmin, Dee Donnington and Angela Anderson-Shelta first meet in Mid-Wales in the early eighties when the Government is offering cash to local councils to build underground nuclear fallout shelters asking participating councils to test their defences and emergency services with military exercises. This is a great opportunity for the politically ambitious Anthony Anderson-Shelta, husband to Angela, Conservative Chief Executive of the local council, a man who is useless in bed and yet badly wanted by his personal assistant, Ruth Tremlett. Written with a liberal dose of British humour, Jennifer Green's A Small Nuclear Fallout follows the three women as they join the Greenham Common women's anti-nuclear protest movement (much against the wishes of Angela's husband Anthony) and watch as all the well-laid plans of the council gradually fall apart including the anticipated visit of the Iron Lady herself, Margaret Thatcher.

After a basic secondary education she worked for Boots the Chemist before joining the Women's Royal Naval Service attached to the Fleet Air Arm. On leaving the service her career progressed through mechanical engineering into senior posts in university and arts administration in London.

Three years later she discovered the gravestone of Mary Morgan a sixteen-year-old servant girl hanged in 1805 for murder.
