They all nodded as they flicked their cigarette ash onto the pavement and took another long self-righteous puff. In fairness it does seem like even in the Lovely Lane series the author just doesn't have a great idea of who she wants her characters to be. The story was slow to start, I was initially ‘put off’ by the first sentence which reminded me of a line from a song, which kept ruminating in my head. The economic ebb and flow of daily life on the streets was dominated by the sound of cargo ships blowing their horns as they came into the docks angrily demanding to be unloaded.

I understand it is the major part of the story line, however I felt the description of abuse could have been covered much more sensitively. There was a warmth about the community’s benevolence towards all those it sheltered and supported, even serious wrong doing was kept within that tight circle and managed.

I acknowledge opinions differ and as a relative of mine used to say “Different Strokes for Different Folks! The series might take you on a rollercoaster of emotions or provide a steady companion on lazy Sunday afternoons.

In this book they apparently have 7 children, but in the Lovely Lane book 4 the characters with the same name appear to have 4 and they seem to be a lot younger. I did enjoy the story, and I felt that it described the living conditions well for that time and place. This is not intended to be a full statement of all your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations. The Bookseller's editor Philip Jones pointed to "some smart pricing decisions" from Head of Zeus for the digital edition of The Four Streets. The entry was a playground to the street children as well as the large brown river rats that grew fat on the spewing contents of the metal bins overturned by hungry dogs and cats.I seem to have picked up quite a few books set in the 40s and 50s lately, as someone who couldn't even tell you whether they live next to a single person or a family, it's intriguing to read about such strong bonds within and community and to see how they all pull together and help each other out. It has a very dark side to which some Catholics, of which I am one although now lapsed, may take great offence.
