Publisher's Summary

Tommy Hopkins' early years aren't very promising. Born at the end of the 19th century in a slum district of Manchester, he's blessed with a loving mam and dad, but they don't have two ha'pennies to rub together.

But Tommy is a survivor. At school he quickly makes lots of friends, and together they plot money-making schemes and play football. Then, it's time to leave the playground behind. Denied the chance of a career, Tommy instead finds employment at Manchester's Smithfield market and works his way up, finally becoming a porter.

He's becoming a man, and amongst the young women who catch his eye is Kate Lally, who may just be the love of his life.

    Overall
    "First of a moving saga of books about real lives."

    This is the first book in the saga of Billy Hopkins family starting with his Paternal Grandfather, fantastic listen, that introduces important members of his family and how it shaped his future. If you wanted to know how your grandparents and great grandparents lived this is a must listen to book.
