A strange decision to base such a novel in the early 60's, but overall it works, although some of the terms used by the books characters were not in common usage at the time. Whether or not someone who hadn't lived through the time would find it so easy to empathize with the characters and description of life I'm not sure, but for me it was a bit of trip down memory lane (no pun intended!) The story has the "feel" of, and certainly the language of a Martina Cole novel. The heroine, Daisy, is possibly a bit too good to be true, especially given the era, and I would question whether an ordinary working class girl be capable of dealing with villians in such a way? It's also strange how the author almost has us rooting for the unpleasant piece of work that is Eddie! The narration and charactisations were very good, and overall I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will certainly download other books in the series.
I found there was know meaning to any of it
