LoveReading Expert Review of A Question of Trust

October 2017 Book of the Month

An interesting departure for Penny Vincenzi as she takes a working-class man made good as her central character. Starting in 1937 and continuing through the war years the main thrust of the story however involves the Labour movement of the fifties and the development of the NHS. Tom Knelston is a staunch Labour supporter who is taken under the wing of a prominent backer fo the Labour party and eventually wins a seat in Parliament. Along the way he becomes blind to his family’s need and it takes a couple of truly dramatic events to force the man to take a hard look at himself, his life and what he may lose if he does not improve. There are numerous sub-plots, interesting characters surrounding the tale and enriching the whole meaty read which is full of fascinating historical detail. A lovely book, highly recommended.  Sarah Broadhurst
