A triumph of innocence over hypocris. licia Woodman was born into a home that should have been filled with comfort and joy. Her mother Elizabeth was bright and vivacious, Humphrey Woodman was a prosperous businessman. But Alicia was not Humphrey's child and he would have nothing to do with her, and before long Elizabeth, too, turned her back on her daughter.

Alicia Woodman was born in 1886, into a family of wealth and privilege in the thriving city of Liverpool. Little Alicia, a constant reminder to Elizabeth of her infidelity, is denied all love by the Woodmans and is left in the care of Polly Ford and her family.

Hilarious Kangaroo
Excellent. The story of a very disfunctional family. It is the classic up stairs - down stairs clash. Lovely character development. I loved Helen Forrester's memoirs. This book was as riveting. Well worth the time and money. Other excellent historical fiction and non-fiction writers are: Duncan Barrett, William Jarvis, Margaret Mayhew, Judith Lennex, Jane Fritzpaprick, Erik Larson, Soraya Lane, Iris Jones Simantel, Anne DeCourcy, Jane Donnelly, Melynda Jarrett, and Mary Gibson. This book deserves A++++++++

Like most of Helen Forrester's books, I found it hard to put down. In her autobios she writes grippingly of her past - for me the memories of WW2 were very similar to mine.
