Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: CATHY'S CLOWN (THE FAIRGROUND ROMANCE SERIES Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Pam Howes is a brilliant writer of 50s/60s novels. i have read everyone of them, absolutely loved them all, and this one is the same. i was sorry to get to the end, a sign of a great book.
Gianni is a lad of the sixties, has a good job, but has a pull of the fairground and ends up working on them. Cathy his girlfriend wants to have a career as a nurse, doesent want be tied down with kids. Gianni goes traveling with the fairground, do they end up happy together, i wont say.
Gianni's father owned the fairground and worked on the wall of death, wasnt with his mother. when his mother dies, he wants to know more about his father. Cathys stepfather is a horrible man. what happens next? its up to you the reader ,to read the book to find out.
i found myself singing to every song that is mentioned in the book, an added bonus. many i forgot came back to me, and i remembered the words. i was a child of the sixties, loved the music, the clothes, the freedom. fairgrounds were a big part of my life, as were the bikes. we had a triumph 'bonnie' same as Gianni.
it felt like forever waiting for this book. and wow.....it was worth the wait, like all of Pam Howes books.
now i must wait for the next in the saga. hope its not long.
i would recommend this book and the series to young and old alike. for the young, so you could see how your parents lived, and for the older (i am 65) to relive our youth. it has sadness and happiness, some edge of your seat things, a great saga. highly recommended. well done Pam Howes, you done it again. ps get it at a great price, at 99p, its a bargain. cant get a magazine for that.
well done Pam Howes. now waiting for the sequel please xxx
