Keeping my sisters' secrets

Keeping my sisters' secrets

Marsh, Beezy, author

Eva, Peggy and Kathleen were sisters born into a close-knit working class family. As they grew up between the wars, they dreamed of escaping their violent father and the crime-ridden slums of Waterloo. Peggy was so appalled by conditions in the factories that she became a Communist. Beautiful Kathleen married an abusive man and later - during the Second World War - fell in love with a GI. Feisty Eva became a pickpocket as a child so she could help their mother put food on the table - and never lost her rebellious streak, or her desire to protect her family by whatever means necessary. As the years pass the sisters all lived close together, sharing each other's lives, supporting each other through hard times. 'Keeping My Sisters' Secrets' is a rich, moving story of three sisters fighting to survive through decades of social upheaval, their love for each other the one constant in a changing world
