I'm a sucker for this genre in this type of setting...just love these books! There's something about narratives from yesteryear, a connection with my granny's generation and the tough lives they led.
'Hide Her Name', the 2nd book in the Four Streets Trilogy, is emotionally charged and quite a challenging read.
Dorries is a really good writer who has the ability to create fantastic characters and imagery. Her plots are well-developed and the pacing and flow are seemless. She really knows how to portray the mentality of the real, gossipy, fierce, depressed and poor working-class as well as the circumstances that create them. Family is everything and loyalty is paramount.
The story is moving and so well worth the effort for those who love a good yarn and a bit of a cry. Do yourself a favour and take the time to read the series.
