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 LiverpoolIn 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.
Born in Cheshire, Helen Forrester, the eldest of seven children, made her home in Liverpool until emigrating to Canada. She is the author of four bestselling volumes of autobiography and a number of equally successful novels.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Having a bad day? Read this book. This memoir is one of a series, but it can be read as a stand-alone. Forrester's memoir describes her experiences as a woman in her early twenties living in Liverpool during World War II. As if the bombings, rationing and grief caused by the war weren't bad enough, her family is poverty-stricken and dysfunctional. If you're having a bad day, read this book and you'll feel better by comparison.
