There are two really striking things abut this book. One is the brilliant depiction of early 50s culture, complete with quiffs, drainpipes and juke-boxes, set against the moral as well as economic austerity of the post-war years. The other is the spirited and engaging heroine who for much of the book is alone against the world. I admit one or two things about the plot didn't quite ring true to me, but I was rooting for Beth from page one and could not have left without knowing the outcome of her dramatic story. It's no surprise that this book just missed the Harry Bowling Prize for a novel set in London and if you fancy a warm-hearted read and a touch of nostalgia this is for you.
Eventually, after four days the smog cleared and the aftermath for the city is huge. Thousands of people have died and lives have been changed forever. The aftermath for Beth is that instead of getting an office job, she is now a waitress - but has met the handsome and charming Terry who has quickly stolen her heart.
Life deals Beth and her family a really hard hand. As she encounters tragedy and disappointment her character's strength shines through. Kit Domino paints a wonderfully evocative picture of life in the 1950s, of the newly emerging coffee shop culture, the music and the fashion. Throughout the story, as Beth deals with the pain and grief around her, she never weakens. Sometimes she may make the wrong decisions in life, but always for the right reasons. Beth is loyal and devoted to her family, despite her Father's treatment of her and her siblings, and indeed, his own wife. She is also determined to fight for her rights as a woman, often going against the wishes of others, to make sure that she as a woman can have the same opportunities as the men.Read more ›
