Book Description

29 July 2011

The fourth and final part of Helen Forrester’s bestselling autobiography continues the moving story of her early poverty-stricken life with an account of the war years in Blitz-torn Liverpool

In 1940 Helen, now twenty, reeling from the news that her fiance Harry has been killed on an Atlantic convoy, is working long hours at a welfare centre in Bootle, five miles from home. Her wages are pitifully low and her mother claims the whole of them for housekeeping. Then, early in 1941, she gets a new job and begins to enjoy herself a little. But in May the bombing starts again and another move brings more trouble to Helen, trouble which will be faced, as ever, with courage and determination.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must read 21 Sep 2002
By A Customer
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 31 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent biography with no secrets 20 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC 24 Feb 2000
Format:Paperback
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.
