Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An interesting tale which twists and turns nicely to an expected ending but it was great fun getting there. We are just prior to World War II when Mollie, only able to get cleaning jobs to support her family, suddenly lands the opportunity to train as a PE teacher. This turns her life around. We follow the social changes of the time as well as the sadnesses of war.

Synopsis

On Her Own Two Feet by Pamela Evans

In the middle of a party to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of King George V in 1935, Mollie Fisher's good-for-nothing husband walks out on his wife and baby girl. Luckily, Mollie has a loving family to turn to for help. Mollie's mother, Marge, is delighted to look after baby Esme while Mollie goes out to work. Meanwhile, her nan, Nora, encourages Mollie to join a local keep fit class, which opens her eyes to a whole new world. Determined to better herself, Mollie qualifies as a fitness instructor and starts to run her own classes for the local community, where she befriends a group of women she would never have known existed. But with the outbreak of the Second World War and the ever-present danger of losing her loved ones in the London bombings, it takes courage for Mollie to stand on her own two feet...
