That’s what one of our favourite authors Paul Magrs author of The Brenda & Effie Mysteries said in his review of The New Arrival.
“I thought this was a wonderful book – written in conjunction with the author’s daughter, a one-time student of mine and terrific writer, Amy Beeson. It’s a book told lucidly, matter-of-factly, and with a great deal of compassion. The past is evoked beautifully, I think – reminding us of the rather harsher living conditions of the era, and the feeling that Britain was only just ceasing to be some kind of latterday Victorian society. It’s a book that reminds us of what the NHS has always been about – and it’s a timely reminder: this book coming out just as everything to do with social welfare seems to be slipping backwards. It’s good to read a memoir about those who get on with committing themselves heart and soul to looking after us when we need them.”
