As I listened to Love as Always, Mum xxx I had so many different emotions that I had to stop the book at times to assess how I was feeling about the details being told to me. The terrible details of Mae West and her sibling's lives while living at 25 Cromwell Street are scary, upsetting and at times beyond belief. I had real difficulty dealing with how Mae described the 'happy and normal times' she sometimes had as a child. I will keep how I feel about Rose West to myself, as I am sure Mae and her siblings have heard it all too many times already. There were times during her heart wrenching story when I wanted to give Mae a big hug. We cannot change what has happened, but I am so glad that Mae and her siblings are now moving on and having the happy times that they all deserve. My best wishes go out to Mae, and I hope that she and her family will have many joy full times in the future. Thank you for your bravery in writing this book. Regards...

The Honest and Brutal Truth. Loved It...

I enjoyed this book so much I have to give it a 10 out of 10.
As a person who previously only had the black and white picture of prison life as given in the official line and dodgy press coverage, this book opened my eyes and heart to the full colour picture of the pressures and dangers that prison staff have to deal with every day while feeling undervalued.
The content was so well balanced, brutal, heart breaking and so honest that it hurt some times, but then it also made me smile a lot too. I am dismayed, distressed and angered at some of the revelations within this book. The story that unfolded was real, sharp and at times also heartwarming. All my emotions were heightened. I will be listening to it again, and recommending it to all.
I would like to thank Neil Samworth for his honesty, bravery, and for writing such a valuable piece of work...

Only history through words now, but I actually felt hurt and bruised from the reality of this well told book.
