Good Historical Family StoryThis is agood book for feminine support and encouragement The story of the sisters learning to make their own way but stay close to their family as well is a great self help for today's young girls to learn growing up This was surprising in that it didn't have as much of the story of the girls growing years as I thought it would but it had a good lesson to learn of survival; strength hard work love endurance and learning from the past and using those lessons to make the future better

‘Oh my goodness – another girl Mrs Swain’ Clara’s normal iron composure broke and she screamed ‘No That’s not the bloody deal’ And that is how my nanna Bertha Swain entered the world When Helen Batten’s marriage breaks down she starts on a journey of discovery into her family’s past and the mysteries surro. 3 stars I liked it I actually loved the historical parts in which the author describes the family lives of her grandmother great aunts and great grandparents spanning from the end of the 19th century to World War II I am particularly interested because I too have been trying to build a picture of the lives of my own ancestors in Hackney during that period and some of the comments on social history were fascinating Differences especially in the attitudes of others at that time illnesses and healthcare Helen Batten has put some flesh on the bones of her long lost relatives a sort of mix of fiction and non fiction I suppose and it works wellHowever I didn't really enjoy the contemporary narrative interspersed among the old family stories The author is trying to determine if there is a logical pattern fate or coincidences among generations and whether that pattern can be broken And since she is a psychotherapist this means indulging in uite a bit of self analysis which I personally found exceedingly disconcertingThe audiobook was performed by Annie Aldington who is a professional voice and brought warmth and variety to the narration
