Born in 1950s Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Yvonne Young's childhood was spent at the heart of the city's industry. With her grandfather working as a ship painter, her Uncle Tom helping to build them, and neighbours working for the local armaments factory, the shipyards and factories were her community's lifeblood. Growing up so soon after the Second World War, it was also a time of great hardship and many families around Yvonne suffered poverty and neglect. And yet, people made the best of what little they had, as housewives competed to scrub their doorsteps clean and children turned derelict houses into playgrounds. Yvonne also delighted in hearing about the characters that made up her area, from the chimney sweep to the still occasional sight of the rag-and-bone man. Despite challenges at home, and an education system that didn't expect her to make it beyond the local factory, she always tried to see the bright side. Cobbled Streets and Penny Sweets is an affectionate, at times hard-hitting, and beautifully evocative portrait of life in a city that has changed beyond recognition. Above all, it is a story of family, friendship, and getting through the hard times with a healthy dose of Geordie humour.

East End saga queen Jean Fullerton returns with a delightful new novel in the Nurse Connie series It's 1948 and the nurses of the East End of London are making the most of life post-war. For Connie in particular, things are looking rosy as she looks forward to planning a future with her sweetheart, Malcolm. But, as many a young bride-to-be has proved, the course of true love never did run smooth and Connie finds herself having to grapple with interfering mothers and Malcolm's reluctance to set the date. But while there are many obstacles to overcome before walking down the aisle, at least Connie can relax in the knowledge that she'll soon be married to the man of her dreams, can't she? Life at work isn't all smooth sailing either. The newly-formed NHS is keeping the nurses of Fry House extremely busy and as ever in the life of a nurse heartbreak lurks at every turn. But there are some new faces to keep things interesting. And one in particular might be the answer to all of Connie's problems...

A Liberties Childhood Born and bred in Dublin's Liberties, Phil O'Keefe's memoir evokes the streets and lanes of her childhood in this enthralling memoir of Dublin in the 1930s. It was a time when draymen carted barrels of Guiness from the brewery to the pubs, when bread delivered to shops on open trays was still steaming, and market day meant cattle being herded through the centre of the city. A fascinating and evocative picture of a time now all but forgotten.
