my review for On are own two feet by Pam Evans 4 STARS

on October 18, 2014

Bringing the Keep Fit movement vividly to life in 1940s’ London, Pam Evans’ family saga will inspire and enthral anyone who has ever dared to dream of a better life.

In the middle of a party to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of King George V in 1935, Mollie Fisher’s good-for-nothing husband walks out on his wife and baby girl. Luckily, Mollie has a loving family to turn to for help. Mollie’s mother, Marge, is delighted to look after baby Esme while Mollie goes out to work. Meanwhile, her nan, Nora, encourages Mollie to join a local keep fit class, which opens her eyes to a whole new world.

Determined to better herself, Mollie qualifies as a fitness instructor and starts to run her own classes for the local community, where she befriends a group of women she would never have known existed. But with the outbreak of the Second World War and the ever-present danger of losing her loved ones in the London bombings, it takes courage for Mollie to stand on her own two feet…
I did enjoy this book it a great family saga it a story that you just want to read more to see what happing next it about wanting a better life for you family 

In 1935 the whole street were out celebrating the silver jubilee having so much fun , drinking and dancing 

Mollie was so happy her baby Esme was the love of her life along we her husband he was wonderful she loved him so much was he a good husband or not ? 
That day he just walked out on them . Mollie got to carry on with her life her mum Marge will help her all she can she will look after Esme while mollie goes out to work
Her family were so good they helped and supported her so much what more could she ask for ? 
Her mum and dad were just wonderful they helped her so much her nana was fab too she talks into going to a keep fit class with her. What fun they had there . Nora got a few secrets hide to i think ? 
She was a figure that mollie look up to she help mollie to do her qualifies as fitness instructor
I loved to hear all about Mollie class when she was doing her study’s things were very hard for her i like the way her family help out . The classes sounded fab you felt you were there doing one with them 
I enjoy mollie friendship with cora . Cora was a lady she work with were they friends? Did they really like each other ? Iife can throw some very hard things a you sometime would you cope ? Did they both ? Both were very strong they were very interesting characters , cora was she happy ? I not sure i think she wanted more of her life i did like the end of the book i think both got what they wanted and thing work out for them both or did they work out right ? 

Mollie had to learn to be tough her husband was a rotten swine his behaviour was not good i was so hard for Mollie to cope .Her keep fit was good for her 
The book a very compelling read it got plenty of drama, intrigue , fun times , bad times and some fab friendships 
The problems associated with the war were brought into the story so well my heart when out to them 
All the characters had a deep dept to them you will get completely lost in their life’s all the characters have a few twists and turns you could not help feeling for them all they were just such great characters . 
The book great it got a bit of romance it a very easy to read book it a heartwarming read 4 stars read enjoy pass on
