About the Book
Three gritty and compelling family dramas set in one of London’s roughest streets. Perfect for fans of Kitty Neale.
Times are tough but so are they. The Street introduces the Kievers, a family who aren’t afraid to say what they mean and back it up with their fists if they have to. With the country on the brink of war, Alice is desperate to escape from the grim surroundings of Campbell Rd, but her abusive Uncle Jimmy will push the whole Kiever family to their limits.
In The Family, Robert and Steven Wild get a shock when the father they thought was dead turns up like the proverbial bad penny. And if there is one thing you can bet on, he hasn’t returned to start playing happy families.
To complete the set, Coronation Day sees the toughest street in London due for demolition. Can Tilly, the tough, uncompromising head of the Kiever family help heal some of the rifts of the past – or will this be one street party they will remember for all of the wrong reasons?

Brilliant read! Really takes you through a journey of hardship love hate etc. Was gripped from beginning to end!!!
This book was excellent, I didn't want it to end. Reading it made me feel like I was living in the era the book was set in.

What a wonderful read…having been born near this area l could see the places and people as described, could not wait to read a few more chapters each night but was so sad when l finished it.
loved this book the sort you pickup and can’t put back down, the setting and characters really come to life, it's as if you can see it and breath it. Wonderful.
