About this deal

However, unlike the first book which centred only around this area, in this book the story goes back and forwards to Ireland as we follow Kitty and her story.

The characters are engaging, the streets scenes cinematic and the theme of the novel powerful' The Times. This gripping follow on from the bestselling The Four Streets finds the community alive with rumours and gossip after the murder which rocked it to the core. Her mother, Maura, and best friend Nellie's grandmother decide the girls must be spirited away to Ireland to await the birth of the baby. Apart from that, it was both entertaining and very informative regarding the Catholic church and the Irish community in Liverpool and their reasons for wanting to go to America. I also was so glad that "Kitty" found her inner strength and herself, as I was dreading her crumbling under the cruelty of the regime in the laundry run by the nuns.Consenting to these technologies will allow us to process data such as browsing behaviour or unique IDs on this site. I echo everything thats been said by other five star reviews and applaud this author's talent for the fine interweaving of all the threads involved. The characters are engaging, the streets scenes cinematic and the theme of the novel powerful' The Times . But there's more than one reference to blue and white Panda police cars which did not appear on the streets until the mid 1960's.

It follows on from the four streets and it isn't just a story, it involves a typical Irish close knit community and the problems that go along side it! This is another gripping read which I just could not put down (like the other books in the trilogy, I read each one in a day they were that good) and I was so desperate to find out what would happen I stayed up way past my bedtime.Not my usual genre but downloaded the free sample of "Hide Her Name" and then I just had to read the rest.

The inevitable time spent by Kitty at the convent was brilliantly conveyed - but I still want to know what happened to the escapee. Again, the events of the book are still with me days after finishing them they were such a compelling read and I cannot recommend it enough.As for the nuns and priests, even though there are often media reports of the wrongdoinsg of the priesthood, mostly in the past, I find it hard to believe in any civilised country the abbey nuns could have treated the girls so badly. Glad I hadn't taken notice who the author was because if I had realised it was the MP I probably wouldn't have bothered reading it. After listening to 'The Four Streets', I had to know more and find out what happens next in the lives of the characters. I too, grew up in this era (and in a catholic community), but we were not so naive or vulnerable as this community is portrayed. HIDE HER NAME is the gripping sequel to Nadine Dorries's first bestseller, THE FOUR STREETS, shot through with darkness, but also filled with humour, warmth and charm.
