She tells how the family depends on the women, who despite having little or no money still managed to get by and through sheer hard work raise their families in slum conditions, no easy job, the women had to be strong to survive. Annie Murray manages to convey the message that then money was not the most important factor in their lives, necessary yes of course but the major theme to me was the love women had for their families and would sacrifice all if need be. A haunting book that I will never forget.
I find that the chapters are short so you just keep going wanting to find out what happened next. Family of Women is about three generations of strong minded women the problems in life that they encounter and how they cope with them.
A reader from West Midlands.
As ever Annie Murray's story telling is excellent, and her attention to detail impeccable. A particularly poignant part of the book for me is the section when Carol is in the Iron Lung. I can remember when polio was a disease to be feared.
As ever with an Annie Murray book it always manages to touch something personal either in my life or that of my ancestors. The references To Joyce working on the Trifle line at Birds, and wanting to move to Banbury to better herself, is exactly what my family did in 1964 when I was 13. My father worked at Birds from 1949 later General Foods, (now Kraft Foods) for 30 years, and I still live in Banbury today, but I am still proud of my Brummie roots, and have recently traced back my family there to early Victorian times.

The girls mother is so awful, right from the beginning you learn to dislike her, but as the story goes on you understand why.
Nice story, but drawn out.
