A BROKEN FAMILY
on 9 February 2014
if you read the back cover, the book itself is not what is to be expected, it's so much more. A very involving book. I think I felt a part of it because I've known characters like what appear within these pages.
Very well written and set in a period where it seems men were men and the woman's place was in the kitchen and then when the man has a fully belly, she'd better be on the bed and willing or be taken by force. Was society in the late 50's really that barbaric?
Mostly based around one street where at the top you have the snobs and living at the bottom you have your working class salt of the earth types.
Quite a fascinating read and so much better than I was expecting it to be.
I relate strongly to Mabel Povis.
