Author Margaret Morgan was born in 1950. Her farm was two and a half miles from the village of Leintwardine in Herefordshire. Mrs McKeiver’s character entered her head when she first thought of a character to hold everything together in the Hills; her fictional area. I expect she is an amalgam of my mother and her two grandmothers. Coming from Yorkshire and Lincolnshire they were fearless, strong women.
