This novel by Harry Bowling, billed as "the king of Cockney sagas," on the back cover, tells about the lives of the residents of a particular working-class street in London during the Blitz. It was a pleasant read but not particularly compelling. I also found the fact that the dialogue was written with an accent (fink instead of think, for example) to be difficult to follow sometimes.

I liked the idea of this book so much more than the actual book. The elderly Lockwood sisters were absolutely my favourite characters and the love Bowling has for London came through loud and clear, but this didn't make as much of an impact on me as I'd expected.
