The third volume in the classic story of Helen Forrester's childhood and adolescence in poverty-stricken Liverpool during the 1930s.

Helen Forrester continues the moving story of her early poverty-stricken life with an account of her teenage years and the devastating effect of the Second World War on her hometown of Liverpool.

At seventeen, Helen Forrester's parents are still as irresponsible as ever, wasting money while their children still lack adequate food and clothing. But for Helen, having won a small measure of independence, things are looking up. Having educated herself at night school and now making friends in her first proper job, she meets a handsome seaman and falls in love for the first time. But the storm clouds of war are gathering and Helen will experience at first hand the horror of the blitz and the terrible toll that the war exacted on ordinary people. As ever, Helen faces the future with courage and determination.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`Remarkable that from so bleak and unloving a background came a writer of such affectionate understanding and unsettling honesty' Sunday Telegraph

`It was the biography that I would have written if my parents had not been given benefits, if they'd had to rely on parish hand outs ... [I] want to press this book into your hands and go, "You must read this".' Caitlin Moran

`What makes this writer's self-told tale so memorable?... An absolute recall, a genius for the unforgettable detail, the rare chance of subject' The Good Book Guide
