Описание: `Twopence to Cross the Mersey` and `Liverpool Miss`. The first and second parts of Helen Forrester`s poignant autobiography. When Helen`s father went bankrupt in 1930, she and her six siblings left their middle-class life for the utmost destitution in Depression-ridden Liverpool. The running of the household and the care of her younger siblings all fell to 12-year-old Helen. In slum surroundings, with little food or support from her feckless parents, she was forced on her own resources. Told with compassion, humour and a remarkable lack of self-pity, this is a fascinating picture of life before the Welfare State and the moving story of one young girl`s courage.

Life in a Liverpool tenement block during the Great Depression is a grim struggle for Martha Connelly and her poverty-stricken family, as every day renews the threat of homelessness, hunger and disease. Family warmth remains constant however, despite the misery and disquiet of the slum surroundings, and the indomitible neighbourhood puts up a relentless fight for survival. Helen Forrester's poignant novel relays bleakness and hardships, but celebrates also the spirit of unified hope and the restorative values of the close-knit community.
