Synopsis

'A moving and engaging addition to the family saga and drama of The Four Streets... Vibrancy and colour warm the pages' LoveReading In equal measure gritty and tender, Coming Home to the Four Streets is the latest instalment in the Four Streets saga, from Sunday Times bestseller Nadine Dorries.



Trouble is coming to the four streets, especially for its redoubtable women, who've struggled through a bitter winter to put food on the table. The Dock Queen Carnival is only weeks away, but there's no money for the usual celebrations. No sign of a tramp ship with illicit cargo to be quietly siphoned off by the dockers.



Peggy Nolan, with seven boys and a husband too lazy to work, has hit rock bottom and is hiding a terrible secret. Little Paddy, her mischievous eldest, is all too often in trouble, but he'd do anything for the mother he loves. How can he save her from selling herself on the streets - or worse?



Maura and Tommy Doherty always looked out for any neighbour in trouble, especially Peggy, but they're far away, running a pub in Ireland and corrupt copper, Frank the Skank, is moving into their old house on the four streets. Can anything bring them home in time?



Praise for Nadine Dorries:



'A moving and engaging addition to the family saga and drama of The Four Streets... Just as warm, gossipy and familiar as I remember... Vibrancy and colour warm the pages... Coming Home to the Four Streets will appeal to anyone who loves an entertaining family saga, this is a satisfying and rewarding return to the series' LoveReading

'Charming, gutsy and full of raw emotions' Rachel Bustin

'The characters are engaging, the streets scenes cinematic and the theme of the novel - abuse, both sexual and domestic - powerful' The Times

Customer Reviews

Having read Nadine Dorries’ work previously, I was happy to accept this one onto my list! The Four Streets is an area in the docks of Liverpool, where no-one has very much in the way of money but community spirit thrives. They rely on goods arriving on ships which can be made to disappear to allow the annual Dock Queen Carnival, but this year there is no sign of the usual tramp ship and there is no extra to be found elsewhere. Maura and Tommy Doherty have gone to Ireland and their neighbour, Peggy Nolan, is barely surviving without their usual help and, even thought they continue to pay rent on their house, there are rumours that a local police officer is to be given the tenancy. Frank the skank isn’t someone any area would want as a neighbour and certainly not the inhabitants of the four streets. They need help – but where will they get it from? I’m sorry I haven’t managed to read this whole series but, as with any saga from an experienced author, it’s easy to pick up the threads of the story and this was an excellent stand-alone read. You would have to be very hard-hearted indeed not to feel sympathy for the poverty in which parents struggle to instil a sense of pride and citizenship into their families. This is a marvellous tale with plenty going on and all the threads entwine to weave a good solid story which will enthral and entertain. As always with this author, definitely worth a read and one I’m happy to recommend. 4.5*.
