Author: Nora Walters

Rating: 5

Review: This is my story too and that of many a Northern, working class, 1950s born, grammar school girl. Add in the author's experience of Roman Catholic education and of subsequent loss of faith and you have the background to the book. It is all there, the rivalry in school, the ambivalence of school friendships and it's follow-up angst ridden experience of life in a university hall of residence. This of course includes frequent fears of pregnancy, the sixties advent of The Pill and dramas of love affairs, loss and guilt. It is the growing up story of my generation of girls along with its own details including a terrible dramatic disaster at the end after which the story comes full circle as two friends/rivals move on linking arms as they had when they were children. All this told in great style with insight and humour, what more could anyone want? Hilary Mantel is my favourite of today's writers and the one I most admire. This book did not disappoint!

Review: As a school girl of the 1950s/early 1960s and a student in the middle to late 60s much of the detail concerning home/school/university life rang true but I was disappointed that the characters of the girls were not developed. We know what profession Julia eventually went into but what happened to the others after the fire. It was as if the final chapters were tacked on because Hilary Mantel ran out of ideas about how to end the book. What happened between Karina and Lynette? Did Karina have the baby? Did Claire go into social/church work and what profession if any did Carmel go into. An unsatisfactory conclusion
