An inspiring read, hard to put the down down until finished.
This is a poignant, powerful and emotional story based on the author's childhood in Glasgow. She uses humour and sadness throughout and tells her story in a very personal manner. I bought this book because it was the first one written by Meg Henderson, a magnificent Scottish author and I had read some of her other books in the series. This one certainly lived up to expectations. At times the sadness and almost feeling of helplessness almost brought the reader to tears, but the main character was strong and fought her way back. I now have all the books in the set, but this particular novel is by far, one of my favourites. It is very realistic. I feel sure that most readers, not only those of Scottish origin, who will identify with the contents, will enjoy this book and find it hard to put it down until the book is finished.Read full review
