I felt like I really learnt a lot while reading this book- about the history of the Jewish community in London. Although, after thinking about it, it really was more about families and women in minority communities so I think it would appeal to a lot of people. I recognised a lot of characters within my own family. There is Dorrie who is the amazing cook and mother and then there is Miriam- definitely the most intriguing character! I would hate to ruin the book for anyone, but she makes the book in my opinion! Also, any teenage girl would recognise Fat David and Spotty Finkel!
The book was a delight to read, so well written and incredibly amusing. It's refreshing to read something set in this time period which focuses on the female voices. It's a book that I can see women of any age enjoying as it shows the perspectives of 3 generations of women- Jo, the youngest and then Dorrie and Miriam.
I really hope people will buy this book as I think it's brilliant and it deserves any recognition it receives!
Definitely, one hundred per cent a 5 star book - one of the best I have ever read.
The narrative follows three generations of Jewish women living in London during the 1960s. The wonderful description of food is mouth-watering and I found myself craving chicken soup and latkes. Ashworth uses the food as an extension of character, which works really well. The characters are vivid and leap off the page. The story follows the women's journeys and depicts their moral dilemmas beautifully and is always underpinned with humour.
If you're on a diet, don't read this book. Everyone else should download it now.
An absolute delight to read!
This book, which explores the relationships of the three women and the men around them will strike a chord with women of all ages. Whilst dealing with some serious issues, there is much to laugh about, and you will not want to put it down until the last page. A great read, you will not be disappointed.
