The Family (Paperback)Kay Brellend (author)

The follow-up novel to the hugely successful debut
In this dank corner of town, you have to keep your friends close and your enemies closer - even if those enemies are your family.
Jimmy Wild saunters around the streets of Campbell Road, and among the people he used to terrorise. Even though the years have passed, he's still a tyrant. The sight of his lanky frame is enough to terrify the inhabitants of this close-knit community, who reside in this villainous corner of London.
Jimmy's beautiful step-daughter Faye and his downtrodden wife Edie eek out a meagre existence for their family, having left behind their lives in Kent. What devastating act was so bad that it drove them away from the place they called home to this hovel of a house in Campbell Road?
Robert and Steven Wild thought they'd moved on. It was hard enough coming to terms with the death of their mother - and now their abusive father, presumed dead, has returned. One thing you can bet on, Jimmy Wild's not returned to start playing happy families...
How can young Faye make a life for herself and carve a future for young siblings? Who is this aged woman that Jimmy Wild has come back to see? And can a romance between Faye and Rob blossom amidst a family at War?

Brilliant read! Really takes you through a journey of hardship love hate etc. Was gripped from beginning to end!!!
This book was excellent, I didn't want it to end. Reading it made me feel like I was living in the era the book was set in.

What a wonderful read...having been born near this area l could see the places and people as described, could not wait to read a few more chapters each night but was so sad when l finished it.
loved this book the sort you pickup and can't put back down, the setting and characters really come to life, it's as if you can see it and breath it. Wonderful.
