Story of Courage and Perseverance,
By A Customer
This review is from: Liverpool Miss (Paperback)
It is one of the few books I have which I have read over and over again over the last 13 years. I use this book (and the other autobiographies she has written)when I am feeling low as a pick me up. It makes me feel that no matter how bad things are, if Helen and her family can get through what they experienced I should be able to get through anything!
It is extremely well written, descriptive but not excessively so keeping my interest throughout the book. The characters are conveyed very clearly, and her experiences are very vividly written, the lack of soap, bug bites and lack of food and warmth makes you realise how lucky you are!
