    Book details

A heartfelt Birmingham saga, Birmingham Rose is Annie Murray's debut novel and was a Sunday Times bestseller.

Life is bleak for Rose Lucas, a spirited, intelligent girl, born into a large family in the slums of pre-war Birmingham. But her friendship with Diana, daughter of a vicar from middle-class Moseley, gives her hope. She learns to aspire to a different kind of existence, vowing never to become a child-bearing drudge like her mother.

Life, however, never follows the way of dreams. After a childhood marked by tragedy, Rose eventually finds and loses the love for which she has striven so hard. From Italy, where she has travelled during the Second World War, she is forced to return to Birmingham and an unhappy marriage, her hopes and illusions shattered. But Rose will not be defeated and she, too, is determined to rise once again above the devastation of her life . . .

It’s never too late to start again . . .

  • By J Brookes on 24 April 2001

    This is one of those 'once picked up you can't put it down' books. A very descriptive and moving story about a girl from Birmingham and her life through the 2nd World War. Murray gives vivid descriptions of life in the poorest areas of Birmingham and how the 1st World War is still having an impact on people when the 2nd begins. It is a story of dreams and ambitions being dampened by the reality of war. Families are torn apart but new friends and relationships are made. The experience of serving her country gives Rose the much needed opportunity to escape from Birmingham and realise her dreams. An excellent book for easy (but tearful!) reading.
