Description - The Cobbler's Kids by Rosie Harris
Returning from the war, handsome Michael Quinn the cobbler is a changed man. He moves his family from their comfortable home to live over a shop in Liverpool's notorious Scotland Road - and though admired and liked by his customers, he is a tyrant at home, ruling his family with a rod of iron and fist of steel. When their mother dies, fourteen-year-old Vera is expected to keep house for him and her brothers Eddy and young Benny. And so begins a life of hardship and little joy for Vera, while Michael drinks away their money. The small wages Eddy and she manage to earn are barely enough to keep the small family going, but then one day Michael brings Di Deverill home and life becomes an even greater trial for Vera - Will she ever be saved from a life of drudgery?
