    One thought on “Autumn Alley”

    1. A fantastic book which I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend, Lena Kennedy is a natural story teller, I loved this book almost as much as Maggie

    2. Love it. I have read this book about 5 time. Found it in my grandfathers basement after he had passed - he gave it a great rating on the inside cover.

    3. My late mother had all of Lena's books and even managed to meet her and get her autograph .i read those books also but Autumn Alley is the one I read time and time again. I love the huge wealth of characters and I love that this was set in the area I grew up in many years later.ere is always a character who reminds you of someone you know and there was quite a few of them in this book .Lena manages to introduce more than the stereotypical image of east Londoners autifully written .

Starvation, being drunk and abusive, getting constantly pregnant and being extremely poor seems to be the basis of all these stories aka "the ghetto". The stories are based during the time period of WWI or WWII. Some characters in the story actually do well for themselves financially and b [...]

    6. This was a wonderful East End of London saga written by a good author. Loved this book.Back Cover Blurb:Gas lights and horse drawn buses, gin-soaked night clubs and fluttering lace curtains: the world of Autumn Alley.Meet Maud, the formidable Irish-American suffragette; sulky Patricia, whose unhappy childhood leads her to a dangerous love affair; vivacious, flame-haired Colleen; Mary, who struggles to bring up children beside her wayward husband - and Arfer, whose quick mind lifts him out from t [...]
