Just discovered Val Wood and so far she's excellent!
Ann Dover as a narrator completes the lovely story!
Interesting book about the poverty people suffered, also shows that poverty does not mean dirty squalid conditions. Women had children the eldest looking after the young ones while fathers were away on boats for months on end. Mothers going to work each morning to survive. Even back then the working class had to be bringing in two wages to survive. Some masters were better than others, there was and still is a the, and is atitude.
There is struggle tragedy, love and inequality , makes it a very interesting read contrasting squalor to opulence. Even shows a desperate honest man, and the depth he would sink to care for iOS children.
I found it amusing how low they will stoop to make sure of ones place in society.
Very good read and will read more books by this autthour in the future.

Could not have read this as a book as very drawn out in places and I would have lost interest. However, well worth listening to. Anne Dover is an excellent reader; so good with voices and accents that it's almost like listening to a play on the radio.
