Not many years after the end of WW2 a young St Monans woman, Jenny Miller, married and emigrated to New Zealand. Although her life there has been very happy indeed ~ she never forgot her childhood and youth in St Monans. Now in her early eighties she has written a book of her early life as a child of the boat-building Miller family. Jenny Miller MacDonald’s book is full of fascinating glimpses of a St Monans which is very different from the place we know today. Whether you are a local, a new Simmininser, or a visitor – you will find much to interest you in this well-illustrated book.
