Publisher's Summary

For Rose Lucas, a spirited, intelligent girl born into a large family in the slums of pre-war Birmingham, life is hard. But through her friendship with Diana, daughter of a vicar from middle-class Moseley, she learns to aspire to a different and better existence and vows never to become a child-bearing drudge like her mother. But life seldom follows dreams, and after losing a love she has fought hard for, and after travelling in Italy, she returns to Birmingham with her hopes shattered. But Rose's powerful spirit will not be defeated.

    "Wasted my credit"

    If the sound quality wasn't so very very bad maybe I could have got through this audible. Story sounds promising, but listening to it in a "foggy tunnel" is dismal.Please don't waste your money/credit on this one, as I have done.
