    I didn t plan to read this book, in fact I didn t even know anything about it, But as I clapped eyes on it during an afternoon shop at Tesco, I knew I needed to read it Being a fan of coronation street, Christmas and wartime themed stories, this was the perfect book The story began in Manchester during the 1930s, it centres around Elsie Grimshaw and her tough start to life for herself and her siblings, her love life and how the 2nd world war affected her family It was heartbreaking in parts but very real An excellent read I can t wait to get my hands on the mother s day one, I would 100% recommend this.

  2. Christina says:

    A heart warming tale of one girl s struggle to escape the slums of Manchester and her bully of a father just before World War II There is a truly authentic feel about this story and you can t help but root for the courageous and resourceful heroine For someone who has never watched the TV programme Coronation Street, this is a fantastic introduction to the characters And for fans of the show, it s a nostalgic look back at the very beginning of this close knit community A book to savour whatever the time of year

    Loved itThe story starts in the year 1937 a young nearly fifteen years old called Elsie Grimshaw living with her large family in back gas street Working two jobs Elsie is a feisty girl that knows what she wants out of life She always admired coronation street weatherfield and as years go on lives there after her marriage this book takes us through two Christmases and into the war years I loved it from start to finish

    As a fan of Coronation Street I enjoyed reading this, a nice change from the Detective Murder novels that I have been reading lately It also shows my age as I remember these characters Loved the history of the Street at the end, the series was always known for its portrayal of strong working class women, their lives and characters somehow sadly I feel that the TV series has now lost that, especially after the death of Blanche and Deidre, in an effort to keep up with rival soaps.

  7. Between The Pages Book Club (Gemma M) says:

    This was my Christmas read over the festive period I absolutely loved it I fell in love with the sisters Elsie and Fay Although having a tough upbringing they both manage to get away and live happy lifes.This book is an up and down book at times, plenty of happy, shocking moments but also plenty of the bad including deaths Has you feeling the whole range of emotions I was hooked A real page turner Highly recommend.This story takes you to coronation street and the surrounding streets during the war and Christmas It was lovely to see both Elsie and Fay growing up throughout this book A lovely ending A well deserved five stars from me.

  8. Rob Cook says:

    Quite a sad book, the story of teenage Elsie Grimshaw is in places not an easy read as she lives with an abusive father and eventually marries Arnold Tanner who has similar characteristics to her dad.This well written book is unfortunately mis sold, the majority of events advertised on the cover don t happen until around 80 pages from the end and Christmas only briefly pops up three times during the book I suspect it has been marketed as a such to cater for the Christmas market.A good read nonetheless and worth a look for fans of Corrie or wartime saga novels.

  9. Karen Gibson says:

    FabulousI was born in 1961 and grew up watching Coronation Street with my mum I remember Elsie Tanner well and this book gives a great insight into what her life was like as a young girl Sadly my mum died several years ago but she would have loved this book I can t wait to read Mother s Day on Coronation Street and really hope that there will be books to come Fabulous.

    I grew up watching Coronations St my father was from Glasgow , although I have gotten away from watching it this book took me right back to those times I never really knew how popular this show was until my first visit to Glasgow in 1985 and my Uncle and family had to be home to watch it This book is so well written and the story so engrossing I was sad when it ended Its a must read for any fan, it shows the characters in a different light Can not wait to read the next one
