Search - List of Books by Helen Forrester

Helen Forrester, whose real name is June Bhatia (born June 6, 1919) [1], was born in Hoylake, in Cheshire, Hoylake being now in Merseyside, and is an English author known for her books about her early childhood in Liverpool during the Great Depression as well as several works of fiction.

Throughout her teenage years, she worked for a charitable organization in Liverpool and Bootle, which provided background for her novels Liverpool Daisy, A Cuppa Tea and an Aspirin, and Three Women of Liverpool. In 1950, she married Dr. Avadh Bhatia, and her life with him in India provided background for Thursday's Child and The Moneylenders of Shahpur. In 1953 the two moved to Edmonton, Canada where Dr. Bhatia became director of the Theoretical Physics Institute at the University of Alberta. He was a pioneer in electronic transport theory and the study of diffraction of light by ultrasonic waves.

Living in Alberta provided background for her novels The Latchkey Kid and The Lemon Tree. Yes Mama, which takes place mostly in late 19th and early 20th century Liverpool, also includes a section about Alberta. As of 2010, Forrester lives in Edmonton.
