Format: Paperback
First book i read from Maureen Lee and an excellent book full of love, life and loss. I have since read Queen of the Mersey and Dancing in the Dark which both live up to the high standard set by this book. Maureen Lee has become one of my favourite writers, if no my favourite and her books are addictive. You will not be disappointed in this noval.I true must read!!

I know I am always in for an engaging story when I read Maureen Lee and this book was no exception. We follow the lives of two very different families. The wealthy Allardyce family and the poor Caffrey clan. They first come together when Brenna Caffrey goes into labour on the back steps of the Allardyce home and is taken in by their housekeeper. Upstairs Eleanor Allardyce is also about to give birth. Two girls are born on the same day, no one is quite sure which one arrived first though. Eleanor and Brenna eventually become good friends and the two families are linked both by this friendship and also by the connection to housekeeper Nancy is sort of a mother hen to everyone in the book. The story follows both families through their highs and lows, from troubled marriages, to sick children. We follow the lives first of Eleanor and Brenna and with the start of the war Cara and Sybil become our main characters, though truth be told Cara is centre stage for most of the book. As the war goes on there are many tragedies and much sadness but there is also hope, romance, marriages, the births of children. The book toyed with my emotions many times, sometimes I would love Brenna, other times I just wanted to smack her. Out of all the characters the least likeable one and I just couldn't bring myself to like him from the start was Colm. He was weak willed and frankly not too bright despite how he tried to build himself up. I only wished Brenna would see him for what he was, but I guess nothing stops true love. Overall though I did enjoy this book, it never let up just when things looked as though they would settle down something else would happen and grab my attention again. My only complaint was the open ending.Read more ›

Maureen Lee(ML) has stumbled across another gem with this book. It crosses plenty of boundaries, class, morals and continents - from Liverpool to Malta to Bombay and back again. The lives of Cara & Sybil are interwined from the moment they are born in September in the same house but classes apart. Their lives are turned upside down from the behaviour and treatment of their respective parents, which cause them to tackle life differently but ultimately helps them create their own paths, not matter how intertwined they become.

Nancy is a major charcter in everyone's lives and seems to be what holds the whole book together as you turn page after page wanting to know more about their lives. Fielding made me laugh with her wit, charm and quips! A real trooper and survivor. There are lots of characters, but not once did I feel I had lost who they all were and how they were related to each other. Somehow ML makes it work.

A really good read, a great page turner and another ML gem - I can't wait for the next one I pick up and devour with just as much delight.

This book was excellent and its a pity about the transcribing of it to kindle format which is appalling...double line spacing inbetween lines and sentences, i felt like screaming as this is the second book I have been unfortunate to buy off Amazon. This does not show when one is invited to look inside the book before you buy so you are not aware of this blatant error until its been down loaded, so isn't there any quality control checking on behalf of Amazon before they are launched on to the unsuspecting public who pay good money for their purchases. So Amazon I say to you...do you read these reviews if so can you respond as I will be cancelling any future books of this type as you lose concentration whilst trying to enjoy the story. I say to all you avid readers complain if it happens to you!!!!!! Its enough to make one go back to buying good old trustworthy BOOKS.

Thoroughly wonderful read I couldn't put it down. The central characters feel like family and the way that their lives become interwoven throughout the story will take you on a nostalgic and romantic ride. Having usually only picked up novels of this sort by Billy Hopkins, Maureen Lee is now another favourite author of mine. A must read...

This was the first Maureen Lee book I ever read. It was given to me by a friend of my mum so I thought it would be old and boring. I WAS VERY WRONG. From the opening paragraph, The September Girls gripped me. I was in tears throughout the book as I could really identify with the characters. Each is written in such a beautiful way that you feel you do know them personally. Especially the two girls. Each have their own characteristics that draw you to them and I did find myself identifying with both of them, when I usually only identify with one character. If you have never read a Maureen Lee book before, I suggest you start with this one and then move onto the Laceys of Liverpool. She is a wonderful gem to be treasured.
