The fourth and final part of Helen Forrester's bestselling autobiography continues the moving story of her early poverty-stricken life with an account of the war years in Blitz-torn Liverpool

In 1940 Helen, now twenty, is working long hours at a welfare centre in Bootle, five miles from home. Her wages are pitifully low and her mother claims the whole of them for housekeeping but she is still thrilled to be working and gaining some independence. The Second World War is affecting every part of the country and Hitler's Luftwaffe nightly seek to wreck havoc on her home city of Liverpool.

Then, tragedy is brought shockingly close to home and Helen is left reeling when she receives some terrible news. But there is no let-up in the bombing and the Germans seem determined to bring the country to its knees. When a move brings more trouble for Helen, she is determined that she will face it, as ever, 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
