A Brilliant Read
on 26 February 2006
Annie Murray's latest book has to be the best so far, from the first page you are drawn into a world long gone but none the last still within living memory. A story of love, happiness, betrayal and hardships. The author paints a vivid picture of how strong the women had to be to overcome their trials and tribulations to win through for their families against all odds.
She tells how the family depends on the women, who despite having little or no money still managed to get by and through sheer hard work raise their families in slum conditions, no easy job, the women had to be strong to survive. Annie Murray manages to convey the message that then money was not the most important factor in their lives, necessary yes of course but the major theme to me was the love women had for their families and would sacrifice all if need be. A haunting book that I will never forget.
