A true insight into the social and personal turmoils of the early(ish) 20th century, as related through the diary of a South London wife and mother, this read will, I think, make you realise just how easy we have it today. I doubt there's many young people who could survive the circumstances which this lady endured!
Lost loves, shortage of cash, the war years, families which blew hot and cold, plus a hint of class prejudice, all give this book the makings of a social classic, and I can almost guarantee that you'll want to read it from start to finish in one sitting. If you're a South Londoner, you'll probably be looking for the locations in your book of street maps too.
When this book is eventually published in paper form, available in every good bookshop and therefore on show to a much wider readership, I feel sure it will become one of today's 'must haves'.
Well written and quite addictive, material like this just enhances my life.
A bargain even if the price had an extra zero after it.
I shall start on the next offering later in the month.
Above all, thank you for sharing, the humanity within is utterly sublime.
The return of a soldier from an extended period of absence to his family is well described, and inner family turmoils are not avoided by the writer.
I thought the book well worth reading, and I completed it in two sittings, which shows that my attention was captured throughout. Well done !!
A very ordinary women telling her story as it unfolded; the up's and down's
and everything else in between. Well worth a read if you like to read this type of thing.
