June 2, 1953. A great day for the Commonwealth – the crowning of the young, beautiful Elizabeth II. Will Clagg, steelworker, his wife Violet, their two children Johnny and Gwinny and Grumbling Granny are determined to see this wondrous event. No matter how long the day, nor the obstacles to be encountered…Each one learns a great deal on this day, and returns home laden with life-long gifts they never expected. A book that could be read in one rainy afternoon – but what it teaches is life-long.
