Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A busy story about the residents of Pearl Street centring on four families with quite a mix of relationships, some inbreeding and some uncertainty about who is related to whom; all great fun. The title comes from the fact that Liverpool city is built around seven main streets which one of the girls becomes fascinated by. It is a lovely story and there are many. Another that is delightful is the one about the girl who is attracted to an Italian POW – and so on. Lots of human stories bustling together in a highly enjoyable read.

If you like Maureen Lee you might also like to read books by Lynda Page, Lilian Harry and Lyn Andrews.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

It's a lively, independent website with reviews, recommendations and more - with a huge range of books available to buy in all formats.

Alison Layland

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
