Annie's Life is the story of a young woman who had a wonderful, bright, and loving future snatched from her by the cruel events which occured around her and over which she had no control. The first world war not only took the life of the only man she ever loved, but also turned her brother from a sensitive young man into a cruel and abusive drunkard and gambler. For her own survival she was eventually forced to leave home walking for miles with a few meagre possessions in a bag looking for employment, which she eventually found in service to Major and Mrs Walker-Browne. She stayed with the family for the next thirty years, with many changes happening in her duties. This included going from maid servant to land army girl during the second world war and eventaully becoming companion to Mrs Walker-Browne. On the death of her friend, Annie was forced from the home which they shared. She was now homeless and living on the streets of London where, when day dreaming one day she was involved in an accident with a taxi cab. It was through this accident that she met Claire and Richard, a young couple who would eventually love and care for her like one of their own family. In fact she meant more to them that their own families ever could. Annie touched the heart and soul of every one that she came into contact with.
