A Brilliant, 'real-life' work of fiction.
on 7 January 2002
This book is very typical of Lee's style, and captures the heart of the reader. Laceys of Liverpool follows the life and story of the Lacey family, and, through every trial and tribulation, the reader feels utter empathy for the characters.
Laceys of Liverpool was a very easy book to read, and almost impossible to put down. The attraction of this book is, like Lee's other novels, the historical element, along with the 'human-interest' of the characters.
The main characters are very easy to relate to, with Alice being the epitome of many females' aspirations; how she copes through all her problems, yet still manages to come out on top despite her struggles.
This book is to be recommended to anyone who enjoys being swept into a different world, and being so caught up in it, you can't leave.
Absolutely brilliant, with elements of sadness and romance so typical of Maureen Lee, this book is a must-read.
