Summary

1950s Liverpool. In the tight-knit community of the Four Streets, two girls are growing up. One is motherless and hated by the cold woman determined to take her dead mother's place. The other is hiding a dreadful secret which she dare not tell to anyone. The people of Four Streets laugh, grieve and hope together. But what can they do when a betrayal at the heart of their world comes to light?

Not for the faint hearted!

The story is intriguing however way way way too graphic in parts! The detail in the abuse scenes is far too excessive, I struggled to keep going with the book as I found these scenes deeply disturbing,. I understand it is the major part of the story line, however I felt the description of abuse could have been covered much more sensitively. Had I realised the disturbing topic of the book, I doubt I would have read it. I don't recall this being in the description of the book. A brilliant story spoilt by unnecessary details..

a moment in time, vividly told with passion

Would you listen to The Four Streets again? Why?

I listened to it over a 24 hour period, every chance I could, I couldn't leave it alone, I will have to not listen for a while so I hopefully forget some of the story first, it was really vivid and very well read.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Four Streets?

The woman gathering together to cook a huge stew so all the kids would eat that night when times were hard. Many moments spring to mind

Which character – as performed by Emma Gregory – was your favourite?

I didn't have one favourite, the characters were really well drawn, I felt most for Nellie and Jerry her dad

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

something that I wasn't expecting, a moment of forgiveness, compassion and understanding for someone in terrible emotional pain, i cant say when without giving away a huge chunk of the story.

Any additional comments?

I loved this, I was dreading to reach the end, the characters were so real and I wanted the story to go on and on. A story I would recommend to anyone who loves this kind of near historical (within my lifetime) community tale of how things were
