Worth writes beautifully of her memories of that period's poverty and suffering, mixed with great joy, humour and compassion. She has an eye for detail and social history, and above all, for the extraordinary characters that she brings vibrantly alive . . . Underneath these attractive, amusing stories, Worth had a profound moral sense that people could use their difficulties and suffering creatively
