The phrase "Couldn't put it down" truly applies to this book, and anyone who buys it certainly won't be disappointed.

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'.

I really really enjoyed this book. It was an easy read and interesting to me because of the location of the story with the London origins. I could associate certain places to the ones where I lived when I was a child growing up in London. I bought it because I do know the author and really wanted to learn a bit about his background - where he came from - what his parents and family were like. I now have all the information to hand. However, even if I didn't know the author, the book made interesting reading. Well done Lewis on another great achievement in writing this book. I think I enjoyed this more than Redeeming Factor!

I think this is an excellent book. It is the memoirs of an ordinary woman who was born in 1913 so it covers the middle of the twentieth century. It is very interesting and very well written. The writing style is very pleasant to read with enough detail to be interesting without becoming boring. It reminds me of so many of the little snippets of information that my own mother would tell me about her early life. It has brought the mid-twentieth century to life for me. I'm very glad I've read it.

Warm and though provoking. A magnificent journey through another persons life and experiences.
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.

A diary is always a very personal look at life and surroundings, and this is no exception. I found it most interesting and learnt a lot about life in the 20's and 30's , especially the differences that advances in medicine and social welfare have made.
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 !!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Learning about the various people of London from 1913-1965 was interesting and informative. Massie Pops weaves her family tale very tight and evenly with candour and honesty. The class differences were an eye opening. It's a good read.

I just loved this book, a great read about living, surviving, in times that were much harder and harsher than today's. Sheer determination and love among trials and troubles, sickness and death, a lesson for everyone in this book.

I enjoyed this biography. It reminded me, in a way, of the film:Housewife 49.
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.
