ON THE EVE OF WAR, CAN SHE AND HER FAMILY PULL THROUGH?
The Adams family were poor, cheerful and, above all, respectable.
There was Mrs Adams, a widow having lost her husband in the Boer War; Boots, the bright one; Tommy, the quiet one; Sammy, a wheeler dealer in the making; and Lizzy. Lizzy was a real pearl - one of the prettiest girls in Walworth.
Then Lizzy falls in love it is 1914. War is coming and everyone is going to be affected. Will the Adams family - gutsy, tough and cheeky - pull through?
Down Lambeth Way is the first in Mary Jane Staples's Adams Family series. Their story continues in Our Emily.
