This novel is not only a great piece of fiction, but also a bit of an insight into the lives of the 'lower classes' during the 20s, 30s and to the present day.
A great read and another must have for all Cole's fans!
The story centers around Briony Cavanagh, sold to a rich man when she is thirteen by her family. When the pedophile that bought her impregnates her, his wife and himself take on the child giving Briony money which she then uses to become a madam and eventually one of the most feared women in the East End. That story alone and the years that follow would be enough for one book, but Martina doesn't do things by halves (pre-2008) and the story continues on and on until we meet 'The Twins', two brothers who become the two most feared people in the East End, sound familiar?
Martina always creates fantastic characters and despite many people saying she churns out the same old rubbish: she writes about similar things with each book so similarities are obviously going to be drawn but for me the characters she creates are always 'new' to me and I have no trouble separating them from other books and seeing them as completely new, different characters. I can see this being one of my favourite Martina novels, it is definitely one of her best.Read more ›
The characters are very similar to her other books, not much change in there...
This story was much more lukewarm hence for the star rating. I would only recommend this book for fans only as it’s way too long and felt like a never ending Brazilian soap opera.
The family unit was amazing and Martina fully captured you into their fold, wonderful characters, heart breaking moments and an insight into life back in the 60's. Yet again I love Martina!!
Such a good writer and love the fact she explains who the characters are throughout the book as can get confusing at times.
Once I start reading I don't stop for a good few hours.

I think this is my favourite Martina Cole book so far and I've read almost all of them.
It went through the decades and keeps you gripped right to the end .
5 stars, why? Because this book is a journey through life which is far from what any of us experience. Twists, turns, deceipt, family betrayal and sickening hard hitting violence. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Colin S. Ferrier
