Product Description

Review

Praise for Liverpool Miss:

‘Records of hardship during the Thirties or earlier are not rare; but this has features that make it stand apart’
Observer

‘The story of a young girl’s courage and perseverance against adversity… warm-hearted and excellent’
Manchester Evening News

Product Description

Only depression-shrouded Liverpool could spawn a big, tough, loving character like Daisy Gallagher. Passionate in her loves and hatreds, she is the nan of her poverty-stricken family and devoted friend of Nellie O'Brien, who is dying from lack of medical attention. She is always desperate for money. One dark night, she is cornered by three drunken sailors who find her buxom figure, wrapped in a black shawl, comfortably attractive. From fear, she yields herself to them and, laughing, they pay her, and she realise how she can earn a living. Fighting competition, weeping at her own suffering, laughing with her clients, she becomes the toast of the waterfront and earns enough money to buy medical attention for her friend. She manages to hide from occupation from her family, but when her stoker husband returns from sea she realises, terror-stricken, that the moment of truth has arrived.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liverpool Daisy 28 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback
I first read this book many years ago and have been looking for a new copy of it for a while.
Helen Forrester always writes about Liverpool with warmth and candour but this novel also explores the helplessness of the leading character, living through the harsh period of the depression.
She falls, literally, into a solution to her problems and the story describes how her life changes beautifully.
This story is also a social commentary - well worth reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars A delight 23 July 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am an avid fan of Helen Forrester and have quite a few of her books. This book did not dissapoint me, it was wonderfully well written and kept me glued to the very end.

I particularly like the biographies of Helen Forrester and whenever I read them my heart goes out to the poor young girl who was made to suffer for her parents quite inadequate parenting, leaving the care of the children to a young Helen.

Good, riveting, edge of seat, situations for a woman standing alone like Daisy fighting for survival. Couldn't put my kindle down!
Brilliant for those of an age with memories to relate to times of such hardships. Recolections of love hate family issues .
