The crying game by June Hampton begins its story in 1944 it tells the story of Trixie - a girl who has only ever known heartache. As a teenager, she covers up the terrible truth of her father's death and she and her pregnant mother and young brother Teddy go on the run.Determined to build a life for her herself against all odds, Trixie becomes a singer in the pubs and clubs of Gosport all the while looking for her brother Teddy who was taken from her as a young boy.
I have read all of June hampsons books and have to say this is one of her best yet. June has managed to create characters the reader really cares about. Trixie has her faults and is far from perfect making the story more believable. Trixies uncle Sid is a extremely nasty character who causes her numerous heartaches throughout the story and the reader can only hope he gets his comeuppance. The crying game has many elements to it including abuse, dark secrets that are best kept hidden and heartache. The crying game is well written with some surprises along the way, I would recommend this book if you have enjoyed June hampsons books, or if you are looking to try a new author the crying game would be a good start. I dropped a star as the ending felt rushed and I would have liked to know more about Teddy

Thi book like all the Daisy Lane series was written by my creative writing tutor June Hampson. I was fortunate to attend three of her courses and she taught me a lot. She left when she was assigned to write a novel and she has not dissappointed. Set around Gosport and Fareham towns I lived and worked and know well.
Its a mixture of fact and fiction of real human suffering and hardship but written with the heart that gets into your heart. You know love and hate the characters whom she brings to life.
I admire her talent greatly and knowing June feel there is so much of her in this book and all the others she wrote if you want wine and roses forget it Mills and Boom it aint. But warm human stories about people with determination to make the best of what they got.
Well done for another brilliant book.

I started to read her first book last week and loved it. I bought all the other daisy lane books and couldn't put them down. Brilliant stories. I then saw the latest one which wasn't of the daisy lane series. It was about trixie true a young girl with an extraordinary tough life. Her uncle Sid was vile. Loved her strong brother too. Jen, well what can I say? Love is love when it's meant to be. Shocked about Mark but won't recall it here - don't want to spoil it for readers. This book is a must. I really hope June hampson will let us now more about these characters and their lives. Oh no I can't wait for her next novel and highly recommend all her books.

Love June Hampson books--having read the daisy lane books i decided to try the other books she has written,and was not disappointed.
This is a real heart warming story of a family torn apart,and a sister who never gives up looking for her brother.
You really get into the people in the story and feel there pain and troubles,very hard to put this book down.
Would recommend any of June Hampson books

I have read every book that June Hampson has written and although I am quite enjoying this one it is not one of her better ones - there is quite a lot of description in this one so I do tend to fast read this - I will still read her books but would advise anybody that if this is the first one of hers you have read please try the others they are a lot better.

I started reading the 1st book of Daisy Lane and then found out that there was a series of books. I loved each and every one and have now read The Crying Game. To me June Hampson needs to be more recognised as the great author she is and not just another second rate one. I have loved reading every single one of her books and recommend them to everyone to read. 10/10
