Eventually, after four days the smog cleared and the aftermath for the city is huge. Thousands of people have died and lives have been changed forever. The aftermath for Beth is that instead of getting an office job, she is now a waitress - but has met the handsome and charming Terry who has quickly stolen her heart.
Life deals Beth and her family a really hard hand. As she encounters tragedy and disappointment her character's strength shines through. Kit Domino paints a wonderfully evocative picture of life in the 1950s, of the newly emerging coffee shop culture, the music and the fashion. Throughout the story, as Beth deals with the pain and grief around her, she never weakens. Sometimes she may make the wrong decisions in life, but always for the right reasons. Beth is loyal and devoted to her family, despite her Father's treatment of her and her siblings, and indeed, his own wife. She is also determined to fight for her rights as a woman, often going against the wishes of others, to make sure that she as a woman can have the same opportunities as the men.
The story moves to rural Gloucestershire for a while and again Kit Domino is able to paint a wonderfully realistic picture of life on a farm in the 50s.
I was very impressed by the quality of the writing, the descriptions of murky London transport the reader back into the midst of the smog. Each of the characters were well-rounded, realistic and likeable, especially the heroine Beth, who with her forward-thinking ways really makes the reader stop and think about how much women today owe to those who fought the equality cause all those years ago.
This is a historical family drama done very well. The ending is left wide open for a sequel and I'd like to think that Kit Domino will let her readers know what happens next for Beth.
