4.0 out of 5 stars A moving story of love adventure and courage. 18 July 2001
Helen Forrester is a compelling and imaginative auther. "Thursdays Child" is a beautifull novel exploring the challanges and problems facing two lovers from very different backgrounds. Ajit Singh is a charming Indian student who respects his family and their Indian beliefs. Peggy Delaney is a Lancashire girl who knows nothing of Indian customs or traditions but marries ajit and moves with him to India leaving behind all that is safe and familliare to her for a world that is different to anything she has ever before experienced. Helen Forrester evokes a vivid picture in your mind of the life that the coupple now face and gently explores issues such as race, family, love and friendship through this colourfull and vivid tale describing how love can bring two worlds together no matter what the differences.

2.0 out of 5 stars First half okay 26 July 2009
Format:Audio Cassette
I enjoy Helen Forrester's autobiographical books, but find the novels heavy going: they don't come across quite as well, I think. This one is quite enthralling for the first half, telling of Peggy's marriage to an Indian. I found Peggy's ordeals a bit too easy - she doesn't seem to have to prove herself in her new home. The real trouble starts towards the end, where suddenly the story seems to have shifted away from the first person to some third person viewpoint,I thought for a moment I must have the wrong tape at this point, it just seemed to be going on about completely different characters. I'd like to have seen Peggy develop as a character, have children, go back home - the story could have been a bit more challenging and earthy, but nonetheless not too bad.

an excellent story and gives you an understanding of mixed race marriages the only thing i would say is i would have liked Helen to continue the story more and give an insight into how their lives progressed in India.
