I enjoyed this book enormously and found it very difficult to put down. Molly's humour, amazing energy, and kindness draw one into her world immediately. The matter-of-fact way she describes privation, endless work, and occasional fun, as well as some difficult, not to say frightening experiences, makes one feel that one is there with her in early 1940s London. It is a vivid source of social history which should be read by anyone studying life in London at this period, but is also a book which will appeal to everyone interested in the human condition. It would make a great novel, if it were not fact. I found it one of the most enjoyable books I have read in a long time.
