A charming fairy tale to warm your heart and make you laugh and cry. Set in a time of depression when poor people were poor, when they had to make do as best they could the gritty humour of the characters, together with the Liverpool accents gives a sense of reality to the tale.
They contrast with the well-bred manners of the prosperous, yet in the end, are we not all the same? As a character study the book is rich in humour, local colour and is bursting with vivid life. the plot is interesting enough to make you want to continue reading (even if it is a bit far-fetched), and there are some delightful scenes, which makes you want to hold your breath and hope that all will end well for the young heroine. (She is one of the most charming and delightful heroines you can find).
Life was different in the 1920’s, the depression affected almost everyone, yet the people showed the same gritty toughness and kindliness experienced later during the Blitz. This is a book where you should find a comfortable place to curl up and enjoy the read, with a cup of tea and a box of tissues to hand.
