Having been born in Hull is what attracted me to this book when I came across it, as the story is set in old day Hull, I had never even heard of the author. After the first few pages I was hooked, couldn't put it down, I was amazed at how people struggled with things we take for granted and waste every day, and was able to picture the streets mentioned in the book which still exist today, and imagining what they must have looked like. You really get to like the main characters Grace and Ruby and find yourself hoping it all turns out for them. I loved this book and will definitely be giving her other books a go.
