Publisher's Summary

Bringing the Keep Fit movement vividly to life in 1940s' London, Pam Evans' family saga will inspire and enthral anyone who has ever dared to dream of a better life.

In the middle of a party to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of King George V, in 1935, Mollie Fisher's good-for-nothing husband walks out on his wife and baby girl. Luckily, Mollie has a loving family to turn to for help. Mollie's mother, Marge, is delighted to look after baby Esme while Mollie goes out to work.

Meanwhile, her nan, Nora, encourages Mollie to join a local keep fit class, which opens her eyes to a whole new world. Determined to better herself, Mollie qualifies as a fitness instructor and starts to run her own classes for the local community, where she befriends a group of women she would never have known existed. But with the outbreak of the Second World War and the ever-present danger of losing her loved ones in the London bombings, it takes courage for Mollie to stand on her own two feet....

    "Absolutely Brilliant!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of On Her Own Two Feet to be better than the print version?

    Definitely the audio version. Penelope Freeman is a magnificent narrator and there are so many people I counted 12or 13 and each one has a different voice. I felt like I knew them all and was taking it back loads of times because I wanted to hear bits again. I was sad to see them go.' (or that the story ended).


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cora was my favourite character with her funny ways and her snooty voice, at 1st I felt like Mollie, I didn't like her at 1st, then It was if I became her friend because the narrator was such a professional she made you feel like they were your neighbours or something.


    What does Penelope Freeman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Well like I said only a professional could make you feel like you know the people and that is what she is and did, so much so that at the end of the story I knew just what some of them were going to say and how they would speak when someone came back after a long time. I won't say who or what so it does not spoil it for you. It definitely was not predictable.


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

    yes, lots. I laughed, cried, was happy and sad, was shocked and surprised.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was absolutely brilliant. I will definitely be buying another Pam Evans book again.

    "Very slow."

    This is the first totally negative review I have ever written about a book but, quite honestly, I found it to be tedious with weak and overly sentimental storylines which seemed to just drag on and on. The characters seemed to me to be unconvincing and often insipid. The narrator did not help as I thought the accents were overdone. I persevered for as long as possible as I hate giving up on a book but had to do so eventually.
