I use this book as a kind of devotional. It has important, universal topics and John Bowling has, well ... a way with words. I bought one for my dearest friend and really would like to give a copy to all the people I love.
Kate Flannagan has to start again when her husband is jailed for seven years. The war has scarred many in London and not all slums have yet been demolished. Kate can't pay the rent so moves with her children to Milldyke Street, a slum area, and gets to know her new neighbours. The factory work for women is monotonous and noisy, from bottling vinegar to packing pies. Her bored, impoverished kids get up to tricks and the police chastise them, not too firmly. A woman from the street was found strangled some months ago, and a dotty old spinster is convinced that she will be next.

There is a lot of repetition in the story, and I'm assured that a gay piano player would have had a tougher time in Bermondsey, though he does eventually have to leave. The kids are bright and can't be blamed for wanting to escape; they don't even have toys or sports. I wondered why they had so little when they'd come from better? There is some tension as another woman is harmed, but the police detective's work is not rivetingly written and he seems more interested in impressing Kate than in doing his job.

I've read better Cockney books, such as Down Stepney Way, and this was an okay read but not great, and the dialogue is full of I fink this and I fought that, no rhyming slang at all. I've been assured that Glasgow's slums were much worse, a family in a single room with no toilet, right into the sixties.
This is another great tale from Harry Bowling regarding the London he new from the 2nd world war and the building it all back up, He writes with so much love for the London he knew, and the hardships of the Londoners as they picked up the pieces of every ones lives, be it crime or just hard work to get buy, and to keep the children safe and clean,and fedDown Milkdyke Way
