    This social history novel is set in Bolton, a Lancashire town, with cotton mills a big source of employment When Annie s dad was killed in the war, her mother remarried and the 1950s turned out to be bleak years, for her new stepfather had evil designs on the little girl I would love to say the book has cheerful aspects, but every good point the characters achieve is hard won and then they revisit a previous home and see how poverty stricken their former neighbours still are Annie had a temper and was a tough girl, was determined to survive and learn Maybe some readers will be helped by reading of her struggle This is an unbiased review.

    This was the first Ruth Hamilton I ever read and I loved it This is a firm favourite of mine to this day The story of a young girl surviving the brutality of her stepfather and coming out the other side A heart warming story without sentimentality or mawkishness.
