4 out of 5 (1 rating)


1950s Liverpool. In the tight-knit Irish Catholic community of the Four Streets, two girls are growing up.

One is motherless - and hated by the cold woman who is determined to take her dead mother's place.

The other is hiding a dreadful secret which she dare not let slip to anyone, lest it rips the heart out of the community.

What can the people of the Four Streets do when a betrayal at the very heart of their world comes to light?

Review by

An absorbing family saga set during the 1950s in Liverpool.I found it an easy and well written read. The story flows along and kept me turning the pages. The characters are interesting, engaging and well rounded. It deals with some delicate issues with sensitivity and it is not overly descriptive or graphic.There is a great sense of community. The struggles of every day life are depicted insightfully and with finesse. It's a story of not only making ends meet, but how neighbours pull together in times of adversity. It revealed their fighting spirit! I particularly like the chapter where food was collected, cooked and then shared out between the streets.A realistic and stirring tale which I very much enjoyed.Many thanks for sending me an advance reading copy to read and review.
