Product Description

About the Author

Kitty Neale was raised in South London and this working class area became the inspiration for her novels. In the 1980s she moved to Surrey with her husband and two children, but in 1998 there was a catalyst in her life when her son died, aged just 27.

After working for 2 years with other bereaved parents in a support group, Kitty took up writing as a form of catharsis, and now lives in Spain with her husband.

This book was my first on the Kindle and I enjoyed it.
The writing style was nice and easy to follow - no over complicated sentences or mass describing of one object.
The plot was well thought out, reminded me a little of Martina Cole but not as gritty, and there was a good twist.
My first read by this author but I'd try another.

I read the blurb and thought it sounded an ineresting read. To cut down to the chase, the plot was the best thing about it. The writing style is far too simple and it doesn't engage as well as I had hoped.

However, if you are searching for something to flick through, this will suit. If you are something gripping with engaging characters, do not get this.

if you read the back cover, the book itself is not what is to be expected, it's so much more. A very involving book. I think I felt a part of it because I've known characters like what appear within these pages.

Very well written and set in a period where it seems men were men and the woman's place was in the kitchen and then when the man has a fully belly, she'd better be on the bed and willing or be taken by force. Was society in the late 50's really that barbaric?

Mostly based around one street where at the top you have the snobs and living at the bottom you have your working class salt of the earth types.

Quite a fascinating read and so much better than I was expecting it to be.

I relate strongly to Mabel Povis.

I read this book to the end but it is badly written, predictable and has a terrible ending. Rape is treated like something women should accept and normal and i found that deeply disturbing for a book written in this era. I would not recommend as a worthwhile read.

If you like Catherine Cookson you will enjoy this book. I didn't find the story or the characters credible and although I read it to the end I wonder why I bothered when there are so many good books out there waiting to be read.

This book was recommended to me and judging by the 4.5 stars I naturally thought it would be a good read - wrong. It has a weak storyline, very predictable and the gossips in the story are too silly for words. I've given it two stars but think that is generous, I won't say any more about it because a lot of people obviously like it, just not my cup of tea at all...

The story and its content could have been so much better but I feel not enough depth to it. Im afraid not a satisfying read.

I really CANNOT understand how this book has 4.5 ratings. the storyline was quite nonexistant, the characters did NOT have character, WHATSOEVER. this is actually a story of the brady brunch charading as poor little misers in 1950's south london. 2013 south london is gritter than this novel!
