    When my Nan gave me this book, I knew I really wanted to read it I am a big lover of all books based around the Second World War and I also adore Helen Forrester and her fantastically, gripping writing I was not disappointed This book was captivating, enthralling and I felt as if I was in amongst all the action, feeling the fear of the families sat in bomb shelters waiting for it all to be over Not only does Forrester make the reader feel included in the action but there are multiple lessons to [...]

    This one was a Kindle Daily Deal as well, and to be honest I kind of wish I hadn t bothered I feel really gloomy writing this, because when a book leaves me feeling meh it s such a shame.Three Women of Liverpool is set in Liverpool during the Blitz in 1941 When you hear about the Blitz, you automatically think of London, but other cities were really badly bombed too Seriously, Google some images of the Liverpool Blitz The seven night bombardment decimated the whole Merseyside area The book takes [...]

    Liverpool was an important port for transatlantic convoys during WWII and was bombed several times The week long raid in May 1941 was the most devastating This book is set during that week and the author shows how people lived through it The devastation of the city setting and the effect on its inhabitants is very well described.I thought the characters tended towards the worst of stereotypes the protestant family with a dull father, uptight house proud mother, one overprotected daughter and the [...]

    The author draws on her own experiences in a harrowing account of life during the Liverpool Blitz in May 1941, shown through the experiences of the three women of the title and those around them, all struggling to cope with the terrible fear, bewilderment and sheer devastation caused by the nightly attacks When Emmie and Dickie are buried alive, their frightened claustrophobia is vividly portrayed and scarily realistic, whilst you realise with horror that the raw meat smell on Conor s clothes is [...]

    Helen Forrester writes about the catastrophic air raids on Liverpool in 1941 She focuses on three women, each very different and each forced into survival mode as homes and lives are destroyed The author knows her subject and creates such a realistic feeling for the events and the ordinary people caught up in life and death, that I just had to keep reading to see how the main characters end up This book,although about fictional characters, evoked a sense of how terrible war is for civilians whet [...]

    This is the story of three women whose lives were changed when they went through the London Blitz Ellen and her family had already been bombed out and felt they were unlikely to suffer a second time Gwen was busy housekeeping for her family Emmie had just become engaged to a merchant seaman and thought only of the dangers of the Battle of the Atlantic They had no idea what the air raid siren on May 1st 1941 would mean to them.This was a gripping story to me as the bombs that reined down on Liver [...]

    While I think Helen Forrester captured the atmosphere of life in Liverpool in the early forties, the horror of the Liverpool blitz and the hardships of those families who suffered, I found some parts of the book too harrowing to read The idea of the two characters lying trapped in a small space under the rubble for days on end was too much for me I m afraid I had to skip pages of these scenes in order to find out whether or not they were rescued or died horrible deaths.Helen Forrester is a good [...]

    A fast moving plot, lots of war action, but none of this can rescue a thin plot that doesn t offer any sustenance to the reader who reads to the end.


    Kellie

    Intertwining stories of three women living in Liverpool during the World War II bombings of England by the Germans Helen Forrester is an excellent writer who keeps you entranced.


    Amy

    The May Blitz Horrifying and written so well Hard to imagine living that life and that it wasn t even so long ago.

    A fast moving plot, lots of war action, but none of this can rescue a thin plot that doesn t offer any sustenance to the reader who reads to the end.
