5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review, 2 Oct 2010
If you're at all interested in the East Ring/ North Lincs. region and especially if you are interested in the 1930s this is the best read. The various story lines are interwoven and, although the writer was a very intellectual woman, her characters are absolutely real and 'live off the page'. The book is both historically valuable and the characterisations so real and intuative. It would be my book for the desert island. R.C..
