Thanks for your kind review, Helen. I'm glad that you could see how people did help each other out, when they could. Sometimes there just wasn't anything that neighbours could do for each other. When an eviction occurred neighbours often took the family in between them, but had little themselves to offer. Emigration or the workhouse were the only options available most of the time. Jean.
