Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Northern Life (Kindle Edition)
If you enjoy reading books about real people from real places then this is the book for you. An added bonus is if you come from the same area in North Manchester that the author is writing about.
Follow `r kid, her five sisters and one and only brother "The Chosen One", growing up in working class 1960s and 70s Moston and Collyhurst. Riding the CIS lift and visiting her Dad "at his office". The days when playing with her Nana's button tin was entertainment enough, a far cry from the I want, I want of today.
You can feel the love on every page that the family has as the author tells us of her Mam Joyce, her Dad "who is not from round these parts" Callie, her Nana Flo and Grandad Rob whose favourite subject is "the war".
This book is well worth its price and I for one cannot wait for her next book.
