Two Women | [Martina Cole]

Two Women

Danger and violence have always been part of Sue Dalston's East End upbringing. Unloved by her mother, abused by her father, and brutalised throughout her entire marriage, she smashed her husband's skull in a final act of desperation. All that keeps her sane knows that she's done it to protect her four children. At last, they are safe from harm. When she is celled up with murderess Matilda Enderby, their fates become inextricably linked. And no one - least of all Sue - could have predicted the consequences...

    Story
    "Two women, not quite the best narrator"
    Where does Two Women rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story is fast moving and very good, but, the narrator is not eastend enough. It becomes slightly BBC2 and less aggressive.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Susan is very believable and gutsy. She is like a mother lion.


    What three words best describe Jacqueline King’s performance?

    Sensitive, soft, fluffy.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A mother's love.


    Any additional comments?

    Love Martina Cole

    "two women"

    I felt that the discription of this book doesn't really discribe much about the true storyline of this book. But that said , I really enjoyed this book (if enjoy is the right word you can use about a book describing the abominable treatment of women !!!!) , this is Martina Cole when she's on form !!!

    A different narrator to the other MC books , but Jacquelie King did a really good job.

    I'm so glad audible have obtained more of Martina Coles older books , there have been a lot of them I've missed out on , I look forward to listening to them

    "Two Women"

    This is a great read. It gives a vivid account of a young girl growing up in a harsh environment with little love at home and no real family life. The young girl had to grow up early and then have the same mistakes happen all over again. It comes to a reasonably happy ending through the good actions from the most unlikely people and portrays the changes that take in people over their lives. The book portrays the harsh realities of a young girl growing up in an abusive household in the East End of London and yet she turns out to be a loving person who only wants to provide the best for her family.

    "Fascinating"

    How two lives from complete opposite lifestyles meet is fascinating. The book helps to gain an understanding of why some women tolerate abuse for so long. An excellent read into the psyche of abuse and the triumph of justice.
