Packed with drama, dark humour and shocking truths about life for working class women nearly 60 years ago, When My Ship Comes In is a compelling first novel, a gritty page-turner... Wilsher has produced a remarkable debut, a gritty, rollercoaster story of love and loss, hardship and hope, family and friendship and an eye-opening reality check for a new generation of women for whom such limited options in life are now, in the main, just a part of history. Her evocation of a past era, with its struggles and stresses, and her charismatic cast of assorted characters - from lovable Flo to her more complex daughter Jeanie - are beautifully portrayed and make this a must-read for all women's fiction fans, and for book clubs and discussion groups everywhere. (Pam Norfolk Lancashire Evening Post)
