Having been totally hooked when I read The Lost Daughters of Liverpool, I had to patiently wait for the release of this book
I certainly wasn't disappointed 5% in the intrigue started. Who is this mysteries person, hmm took quite a while to find out. But all through the book new things came to keep me wondering. There were many oh Gosh What is going to happen now moments. Pam kept us guessing.
There is pain, there is heartache, there is fun and so, so much more.
I truly recommend it, do read the Lost Daughter of Liverpool first although this one will read as a stand alone
I now have to wait patiently for book 3
But I also recommend all the books this author has written.
Dora is now a single mother after Joe having a fling with Ivy. Dora doesn't trust Joe no more. When one day Social services comes and takes Carol away saying that a complaint has been made and Joe takes custody of her. Dora vows to get Carol back. If that isn't enough Dora mother has a fall and ends up in hospital. But, they discover that it wasn't and accident that she was actually burgled. The police hunt for who did it. As they have discovered that there has been other similar incidents.
Then good news in Dora life when she gets a job in a shop designing clothes. Dora is in her element. She loves the job. Things are looking up.
I loved this book, liked the first one in this trilogy. This is a heart warming and heart wrenching mixture of emotions. It is also a suspenseful read. I loved all the different characters and they way the life was. They all made do with what they had. I could'nt put it down. I can't wait for the third book to see what happens to Ivy.
After finishing the first book in the saga, I was dying to catch back up with Dora and her family again. Poor Dora has been through so much and thought it was time that she had a bit of luck for a change. As soon as little Carol is taken off her though, I knew this was not going to be the case.
I couldn’t think of anything worse than having a child taken off me. I really felt Dora’s pain. Everyone knows what a good mum she is to the girls so to have this happen was just heart breaking.
As much as I love Joe, Dora’s estranged husband, my feeling of wanting to give him a good slap hasn’t changed from the first book. The fact he can’t see through Ivy who is hell bent on making him hers, really riled me. She is a horrible woman and my dislike for her has only grown more also.
What I love about these books are that they are very much about family, relationships and working life. Even though this is set not long after the war, the worries and issues that Dora has, are sadly very much ones that happen in today’s world. There is certainly a lot that readers will have either been through or can easily sympathise with.
The Forgotten Family of Liverpool is yet another enthralling read that I couldn’t put down. Roll on book three so I can catch up again with them all soon.
