    "TERRIFIC, FIRST BOOK TO MAKE ME CRY!"

    I love MCs books and there is no other narrator that is a brilliant as Annie Aldington, superb!
    I must admit I did find it a bit samey and it didn't hold my attention completely until half way, maybe book 2 onwards. From then on it got going and I kept wanting to listen to it but at the same time didn't want it to end!
    A few eye opening bits I had guessed earlier but that didn't stop it being a great read.
    The ending is so touching and I never thought I would cry at a Martina Cole book but cry I did!
    Definitely a great book. I knocked a point off of being a five star purely because of the first half.

    "Not martin as usual standard"

    I love Martina Cole books, but this one isn't the usual standard.

    This one just didn't have the usual gripping elements of the book.

    It felt as though the parts were explained rather than "dropped" in front of the reader (listener).

    It's a shame, I guessed the ending and was waiting for it to happen, but the book seemed uneventful and very very long and this is such a shame.

    Maybe it's the way I which the book has been adapted for audible, the narrator as always was good, just something didn't work for me.

    I'll of course await Martinas next book, I'm still a loyal fan and hope the next one is back to her old style.

    "Never disappoints... great story"

    I love this type of gripping storyline of hard times and crime with loyalty and survival.

    Was captivating and really enjoyed.

    Can't wait for the next one..

    "Back to the old style Martina Cole"

    I enjoyed this book much more than I expected. It was a return to the old style of an almost biographical account of a figure in London beginning in the 50's and 60's.
