I was very pleased to see that the library finally got a Valerie Wood book. It was expensive flying to England for them. If you are from East Yorkshire and especially from the Hull area you will enjoy Valerie Wood's books; however this book is mainly set in London. It is true she writes a little like Catherine Cookson but if you like historical fiction you might enjoy her books. Her earlier books are probably a little better than this one but I still enjoyed this book.
