  • Cockney family saga

    This was a really good start to a series. Very enjoyable. Told with humour and some cockney thrown in. Follows the lives of the Adams family and their neighbours.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Real Gem.

    Mary Jane Staples is a fine writer. I unreservedly recommend this novel. The Adams family are true Corkney who laugh and sing through all their ups and downs. Struggle to make ends meet, yet thrive in their world. They are the centre of their community, they embrace the world around them. This story falls before WW1 and through the beginning of the War and ends around 1915/16. Town life of the family, young people coming into their own as young adults, the weekly scrounging to pay rent and put food on the table. But amongst all of this is laughter, picnics and walks in the park. Then the shadows of war and the fear for loved ones. The young men signing up and the horrors of the trenches, the Somme, and the soldiers coming home torn apart. Amongst this there is also a mystery at home, an elderly neighbour murdered in her bed, police, betrayals and secrets. I read this in one sitting, once I fell into this amazing community I couldn't stop turning the pages. A wonderful beginning to the series. I'm already getting out the second in the series to read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
