Book Description

In the Four Streets in Liverpool, a dreadful murder has been committed, and 14-year-old Kitty Doherty is pregnant with the dead man's child.

This secret is so dangerous that her mother, Maura, and the redoubtable Kathleen, her best friend Nellie's grandmother, decide the girls must be spirited away quietly to Ireland to await the birth of the baby.

But back in Liverpool, the police are not giving up their search for the truth. Somewhere, in this tight-knit Irish Catholic community, someone must know something. Someone surely will talk one day. The streets are alive with gossip and rumour and it isn't easy to keep a secret that big.

HIDE HER NAME is the gripping sequel to Nadine Dorries's first bestseller, THE FOUR STREETS, shot through with darkness, but also filled with humour, warmth and charm.

More About the Author

My books are set in the midst of an Irish community in the 1950's and 60's. THE FOUR STREETS, is the first of three and the story begins in Liverpool with the second book in the trilogy, HIDE HER NAME, moving across to the west coast of Ireland. Number three, THE BALLYMARA ROAD, is where we leave the story of Kitty. The books are described equally often as 'funny' and 'dark.' There's a murder, a ghost (unconnected) and lots of love and laughs. I hope that what the trilogy achieves is a fictional depiction of life as it was for a poor Irish community during that time, good and bad. RUN TO HIM, is my 'one day novella' (I claim ownership of that genre description here and now!) for those who want something slightly shorter.
I began writing when my youngest child left home for university and I was left with an empty nest. As a result, I would encourage anyone who has always wondered if they could write, to have a go. You just never know what may happen. It doesn't matter how many hours a week you work, everyone needs downtime. For me, it has led to a deep contentment and happiness that has helped me to fulfil so many other roles in my life and, without doubt, I am a better person as a result of the enjoyment I derive from writing in my spare time.
I live between Westminster and Bedfordshire with my vet partner Chris. I have three wonderful daughters and two beautiful dogs.
I claim no Parliamentary expenses and use my MP salary and earnings from writing to subsidise my public role as an MP.

The second book in The Four Streets trilogy sees Kitty pregnant as Kathleen and Maura plan a way for her to give birth without giving the role of their families away in the murder of Father James, the police doggedly investigate the priest's death. However, a second murder alarms the residents of the four streets.

The first book in this trilogy was a very satisfying read and this second instalment does not disappoint, in fact I stayed up most of the night to read it. it times of great adversity the human spirit does triumph and this is a theme that runs through the first book and this one. I look forward to reading the final instalment in Summer 2015.

I echo everything thats been said by other five star reviews and applaud this author's talent for the fine interweaving of all the threads involved.

My only concern was that at times I found it hard to believe this was the early sixties as it seemed to be more 50's....I too, grew up in this era (and in a catholic community), but we were not so naive or vulnerable as this community is portrayed.

But thats my only negative comment. I loved how the book kept me turning the pages without false cliff hanging or contrived suspense. The story did it all, as it unravelled. And what can I say? Totally stunned by the twist at the end. The inevitable time spent by Kitty at the convent was brilliantly conveyed - but I still want to know what happened to the escapee. And the final trip by Daisy -- deftly handled so that the reader is carried along (well I was!), then smacked in the face by yet another scheming plot....

One final query - Simon change brands for obvious reasons - almost as an aside -- but then apparently changed back again? Loved this and dont think June will come fast enough! So many loose ends to tie up - well done to Nadine Dorries - I only wish I had a fraction of her talent!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nadine Dorries is a realy good storyteller. 1 Feb. 2015
By Chris
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not my usual genre but downloaded the free sample of "Hide Her Name" and then I just had to read the rest. I hadn't read book 1 but that wasn't a problem as "Hide Her Name" stands alone. Glad I hadn't taken notice who the author was because if I had realised it was the MP I probably wouldn't have bothered reading it. That would have been my loss. It was a well written, thoughtful book. I thoroughly enjoyed it despite being thought provoking and bringing back memories of my Catholic school. I recognised the caring and uncaring nuns and felt that she gave a very fair picture of the close knit Irish Commnity. I also was so glad that "Kitty" found her inner strength and herself, as I was dreading her crumbling under the cruelty of the regime in the laundry run by the nuns. I do not often purchase books as there are so many good "freebies", but this one was worth it and part 3 is a must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 3 Jan. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had read The Four Streets quite a while back,and this one just seemed to seamlessly pick up where that one left off! I enjoyed both books,although the content at times was very distressing and dark, but there was also humour,and a great sense of community,where everyone was in the same boat,but no matter how badly off they were,they were always willing to share their last bite! I loved the Characters,and you almost felt as if you were there with them,always a sign for me of a good book! I would have given Hide Her Name five stars but for one thing,and it does deserve five stars, but it ended so abruptly,I was reading away,and turned the page and it was over!! I know The Ballymara Road is the last book in the series,and I do hope Nadine ties up all the loose ends, but I think she could have ended this one a little more gently, abrupt endings are my pet hate,which is why I have deducted a star!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hide Her Name.. 18 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a follow-up to the first in this saga. The Four Streets being the one to read first. 5 stars just isn't enough to give these two books I cannot wait for the next one. Roll on summer, mines already on order.

this was such a brilliant read that I could not put it down. Ms. Dorries brings the characters to life and at times, I felt as though I was sitting in Maura's kitchen, having a good natter and a cuppa. The entire book was so descriptive that as I read, my mind's eye was showing the twitching of the nets, the sparkling snowflakes covering the ground and a very proud Tiger, carrying the priest's langer. Could not stop laughing at that one. Also pleased that Ms. Dorries did not "pussyfoot" around the nasty, vicious and perverted actions by those who represent the Catholic Church. Looking forward to book 3.
BTW, if anyone knows of any books of this nature which take place in Leyton, Leytonstone, Walthamstow, I would love to have the titles. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really loved this second book by Nadine Norries 17 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really loved this second book by Nadine Norries. She seems to really understand how people think, how people in the real world act and react.

The story is set in the North in an Irish Catholic community. A young girl is abused and becomes pregnant and the family have to work hard as a unit in order to save face for themselves and the young girl.

Ms Dorries has a very good insight into poverty and neglect and this shows in the sadness of the young children who haven't any shoes, whose fathers almost live in the pubs drinking away their wages.

I have just bought the third book by Nadine Dorries and look forward to reading it.
