Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

exceptional saga!

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!

Absolutely brilliant

Well, I certainly ran the gamut of emotions reading this brilliantly written book. The story is, from start to finish wonderfully realistic, and the clever narration by Emma Gregory changing accents from Irish to Liverpudlian then back again, along with Welsh and the occasional Southern English had me actually “living” the story and found myself practicing my Irish accent....
I just could not stop listening to it and before I knew it I was getting to the end of the final chapter with panic, wishing it could just go on and on.
I actually purchased the next book THE BALLYMARA ROAD within minutes of finishing this one.
A must. I can not compare it to any other book I have read because I felt it has an absolute uniqueness.

Very enjoyable

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.

Very enjoyable

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 .....,,!

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.

Lovely book dealing with sensitive subject

WOW! This is my first Nadine Dorries book and I absolutely loved it. For all she was writing about a sensitive subject it was handled respectfully. Most of the characters believable and likeable and the story interesting. I was sorry when the book came to an end. Definitely buying more by this author.
