By the Waters of Liverpool, Paperback Book

Description

The third volume in the classic story of Helen Forrester's childhood and adolescence in poverty-stricken Liverpool during the 1930s. Helen Forrester continues the moving story of her early poverty-stricken life with an account of her teenage years and the devastating effect of the Second World War on her hometown of Liverpool. At seventeen, Helen Forrester's parents are still as irresponsible as ever, wasting money while their children still lack adequate food and clothing.

But for Helen, having won a small measure of independence, things are looking up.

Having educated herself at night school and now making friends in her first proper job, she meets a handsome seaman and falls in love for the first time.

But the storm clouds of war are gathering and Helen will experience at first hand the horror of the blitz and the terrible toll that the war exacted on ordinary people.

As ever, Helen faces the future with courage and determination.
