Most Helpful

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
