Rachel, the brave Mum, with all her strengths and limitations, fights do do the best or what she thinks best for her children, often unrewarded. Carrie and Sam, the twins, are to take responsibilities not only for their younger siblings Paul and Alice, but for the economical survival of the family, and are supposed to do without any advanced education, though they were so capable. Despite the daily hardships they remained children, had a childhood with all the joys, excitements and disappointments. And there was Hannah, the eldest, who always seemed to be a bit turned away from family matters, but had her share too in their welfare. Granny Rosie was the children's comfort and her home a refuge. She was a Granny of the kind, every child should have one.
Finally the family members all made their way - one way or another. This all is quite humorously written, and amply used Scots makes the story authentic.
And for people who know Leith, the local colour will be an extra delight.
There must have been numerous families who struggled to keep the woolf from the door and put a meal on the table in the early 20th century but they seemed to have a fortitude all of their own to keep going no matter what, keeping family together was so important. Makes you wonder if these days we would be able to do the same if the tables were turned.
Well done Millie, a superb book with laughter and tears especially when poor tiny died but nevertheless can't wait to get started on next book.
