review Eve of the Isle

Eve of the IsleCking Eve's ramshackle riverside cottage and forcing her to take refuge with the lecherous Harold Slygo and his drunken wife As Eve's home life turns from bad to worse she is befriended by a young police constable Charlie Merritt who shares Eve's growing suspicions that her husba. I enjoyed the read about a young flower seller and her sons on the Isle of Dogs in London of 1928 although it can be tough wading through their challenging life Eve married a lascar a sailor from India and has to cope alone when he is lost at sea A running thread is that a young police officer decides to investigate the death as and when ships come to port On the Isle the ships tie up just past the back walls of houses but the low level of the land means that Eve's house is flooded at the start of the book; she her friends spend most of the tale being moved from one place to another taking the kindness of friends and resentment of families in their stride With hard nosed hard working people who distrust the police and a sprinkling of Cockney slang the tale is full of character There's romance and danger and uite a lot of mud I would say the tale is suitable for readers from teens up who want to know how hard life really used to be not just a fantasy version And I love the cover photo of ships tied along the Thames walls
