Product Description

Review

‘Remarkable that from so bleak and unloving a background came a writer of such affectionate understanding and unsettling honesty’ Sunday Telegraph

‘What makes this writer’s self-told tale so memorable?… An absolute recall, a genius for the unforgettable detail, the rare chance of subject’
The Good Book Guide

'Should be long and widely read as an extraordinary human story and social document' Observer

About the Author

Format: Paperback
After reading all of the four autobiographies (all four books read within five days - absolutely captivating), I am anxious to learn the rest of her life. I also come from a big family but have never had to go through any of the hardships that Helen and her brothers and sisters went through, drink and ciggies were the last thing on my mum and dad's mind. How anyone could actually live a life like Helen did and still come out smiling in the end is beyond me. Full credit to Helen and her wonderful story telling. Eagerly awaiting the after war years and life in Canada (if there is ever going to be one - please Helen).

Helen Forrester's autobiography books should be used in school history lessons. They are so well written. You feel a sense of anger especially when you read about Helen's battles with her family for her right for an education and to go to work, things that we all take for granted. I would love to hear Helen's tale of how she got on after the war and how she came to emigrate to Canada.

The Helen Forrester biographys are excellent, they show what life was like then. So hard and miserable i wonder how people would cope with conditions like that today in the developed worlds,especially without all the help we get today.

I read all four of the Auto biography books and cried for Helen. The books were fantastic and I was sad that they had come to an end, My only problem is that I need to know if there is a book to cover the time from the end of the War until she moved to Canada...If anyone reads this and knows of a book then let me know and If Helen Forrester reads this, please let me know if there is a bokk to cover that era...Thanks it was fantastic.

I think if she had suffered the way she portrays I find it unbelievably sad and very thought provoking. However, a good read although the final conclusion to her story could have been done in one book. I rather felt I was reading a Channel 4 programme where a repeat of many aspects are given again after the advert breaks. I would have given 5 stars if she had carried on with her story By the Waters of Liverpool rather than added an additional book i.e. Lime Street at Two. I have now read all four of these books and do not think anything further needs to be added!

A good insight into war time poverty and hardship but she has exhausted this subject in other books. I didn't finish it.
