5.0 out of 5 stars I would give 10 stars if I could 17 Jan 2008
Format:Paperback
This was the first book of Annie Murray's that I read, I just couldn't put it down until I had finished reading it. I have read all of her books and not been disapointed by any but this was my favourite.
24th April 2008. Having made the previous comments some months ago, I have now reread this book again.What joy, what pleasure this book gave me. The storyline twists and turns and you never know where the storyline is going. This book certainly brings out the emotions in myself. It's about a young orphaned girl and her struggles throughout childhood and attempting to survive what fate dishes out to her. Which is not all good but which makes her the strong survivor that she becomes later. It is a beautiful story. If you have never bought any of Annie Murray's novels I suggest you buy this one as you will not be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Orphan of Angel Street by Annie Murray 1 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
A fictional story based in Birmingham like her other books.

I've only just started reading this book but if it is anything like the other books I've read by this author then I am sure I will love it just as much! Annie Murray has done her research well on history of Birmingham maybe because she lived there once - as I did. I know from my late mother - who was born in Birmingham and my own family history research that a lot of the factual parts about Birmingham are true, maybe that is why I loved her books. I don't know but they were so good I couldn't put them down!

By Mal

I enjoyed everything about this book I couldn't put it down, you're transported to another time and place. A well written, descriptive read - you can feel the atmosphere of the surroundings and feel sensitive towards it's main characters.
It's the first book I've read by this author but certainly will not be the last!
