I m a fan of quite emotional books, not so much they depress me, but to think someones gone for a sad life to an improved one. Joan Jonker s books were always full of emotion whether it be laughter, tears or a bit of both. ~~The Plot~~ Robert (Bob) Dennison and Edie Brady both grew up on the same street which consisted of two up, two down houses in Liverpool. They were quite poor and both families always struggled to make ends meet. This is when Bob got his first break and ended up with his own delivery business. This, in turn, has turned Edie, or Edwina as she now prefers, to become a first class snob who refuses to acknowledge where she s from. They have three ...

Mary is obviously the main character in the book and her main downfall is love. The man of her dreams, Bob, is a soldier and is sent off to war. He only has fleeting visits home ...

Sadie was a lady is another of Joan Jonker s books that you won t want to put down until you ve finished. ~~The Plot~~ Sadie is from a rather poor family with a mother and father that look after their own needs, rather then their 6 childrens. She walks around in raggy clothes and only possesses one dress and one pair of shoes that could really do with being replaced. She hates her life, has no money and nothing decent to look forward to even though she goes out to work everyday. The last straw for Sadie is when her mother tells her she s getting no money this week as her father has bet it all on the horses. Harry, Sadie s neighbour, finds her crying outside and offers ...
