No one knows who did it, least of all the police. Somewhere, in this tight-knit Irish Catholic community, someone must know something. Fourteen-year-old Kitty Doherty, pregnant with the dead man's child, is a danger to everyone who needs to keep the secret. Her mother, Maura, and best friend Nellie's grandmother decide the girls must be spirited away to Ireland to await the birth of the baby. But it isn't easy to keep a secret that big.

"The characters are engaging, the streets scenes cinematic and the theme of the novel powerful." (The Times)
"A vigorous and vibrant story... As fast-paced as it is entertaining. An addictive novel to be devoured in one sitting." (The Sunday Express on The Four Streets)
This book and its prequel, The Four Streets, is a first class novel about second class Irish immigrants relocated to Liverpool. The lives of the families on the four streets is both heartbreaking and hilarious. The narration suits this story beautifully, accents are flawless, inflection perfect. I cannot rate this trilogy high enough!
After listening to 'The Four Streets', I had to know more and find out what happens next in the lives of the characters. Therefore continued with the follow up book 'Hide her Name'. Equally enjoyable and well read by the narrator, just need to know which book comes next .....,,!
Loved the second book and can't wait for the next one please hurry because I can't wait to hear what's next
Having finished The Four Streets I just had to read the follow up. The story makes for uncomfortable reading in places but is so well written you just have to read on. The twists and turns and predictability just leave you wanting more. I think that the narrator s voice lends perfectly to this story.
"This kept me gripped"
Having read "the 4streets" and enjoyed it I am not disappointed with this book. In fact I hear there is another which I will defiantly forward to.
"Remember this writer"
This is the 2nd book in this series and both have been fantastic to hear. I cannot fault either and will now begin the last in the series knowing how much I will admire it. Hope there will be more books by this author.
Another brilliant book by Nadine Dorries so amazingly written and compelling from start to finish. I can't wait to read the third book in this series
"Wow what a story roll on 3rd book cant wait."
Fantastic follow on from the four streets.
All of it I laughed, cried, and then some.
what a fantastic performance by emma gregory really brought the book alive.
the whole story moved me incredible.
yes please let us have the third book and then keep writing about this wonderful world that keeps you so captivated, shocked, sad, happy, a real rollercoaster of emotionsi was gripped from the first book and its just got better and better. Give us more please.
Keeps you interested until the end, the characters you believe in and want a happy ending would definitely recommend this
"loved it and can't wait for the third book."
excellent carry on from Four Streets.
will hope we find out more about Alice and America in the 3rd book.
love these old sagas.
For some tremendously difficult content & themes, this story is beautifully told.. not always an easy read but true to the real life experiences & very moving..
