    One thought on “Maggie”

    1. I love Lena Kennedy novels! Normally I don't read books, but as one reviewer said "it's the kind of book that when you're done, you eant to start over again". I read her books a number of years ago, but kept every one of them for that reason read them all again some day.

    2. This book was written by Lena Kennedy, who I had never heard of, but have since found she is an excellent writer.I'm not one to read romance novels, but for some reason I checked this book out in 1981, and read it. It turned out to be one of my favorite books of all time.The story is about a young woman,the daughter of an Irish widower back in London before WW2.It is the story about her life, including getting pregnant at age 15 by the boy who she felt was THE one, to later losing her children d [...]

    3. I loved this book. I read it ions ago (like about 30 years ago) It was one I had kept all these years but never re-read (I seldom re-read). Lately I have had trouble finding a satisfying read and I picked this up.Romantic and inspiring. I thought of it as an "epic" and was shocked to see it is a contemporary romance. Sure it's romantic but basically it is the story of one young very impoverished girl who grows up in the east end of London. The book takes us from pre-WW1 all the way past WWII and [...]

    4. This is the first Lena Kennedy book I had read and also my favourite book of all time. An absolutely fantastic story based during the war in the east end of London. I love all the characters and I highly recommend this book!

    5. Great read!Why was I in such a rush to finish this book? I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all about Maggie and her brood and just wish the story could have gone on longer - I am now suffering from "the post-book blues" !!!

    6. Captivating.I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely read.Maggie was so endearing,and her diverse family kept the me interested to the point that I couldn't put this book down,this is the second time I've read this book and it was as good the second time around as it was the first.

    7. this is a wonderful book set during the London blitz and the years following. tell the story of Maggie, her early years as a girl and young wife living in the east end, through her older years. a hidden gem

    10. A women's taleAn enjoyable read ,couldn't put it down. takes the reader into the life and times. Follows her through underage pregnancy and her husband's death.
