3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly disappointing, 12 Sept. 2012
This review is from: The Sugar Girls - Joan's Story: Tales of Hardship, Love and Happiness in Tate & Lyle's East End (Kindle Edition)
I looked forward to reading this collection of stories, having so much enjoyed The Midwife Trilogy by Jennifer Worth (which is also set in London's Docklands and details the state of midwifery during the 50s and 60s). Unfortunately, unlike the Midwife Trilogy, this book was very disappointing...the implication of the summary is that it is about Tate and Lyle during the war but, although there is information about the company, the war years are dispensed with in just a few pages. It's really just a collection of diaries, written by ordinary people so, much of what is written is of no interest to a reader who doesn't know the individual, and of no relevance whatsoever as a history of the area.
