Mary Jane Staples was born, bred and educated in Walworth, and is the author of many bestselling novels including the ever-popular cockney sagas featuring the Adams family. So in "Our Emily", book 2 in the Adams family chronicles, we have the kids all pretty much grown up. Boots is back from the war, married and making due with his disability until an operation hopefully gives him his freedom back. Ned and Lizzy are building a family, Tommy trying to find work in a depressed economy and Sammy making a killing in his various business ventures. Emily is still very much Emily, excelling in her workplace but feeling a failure as a wife.

When fiery Bridget Cummings advertised for a lodger, she did not expect a policeman to apply for the room.

When Baroness Sophie von Korvacs meets British painter James Fraser one hot summer's day in Vienna, the attraction is instant. A whirlwind romance follows, with Vienna bathed in the brilliance of the last days of the emperor. When fiery Bridget Cummings advertised for a lodger, she did not expect a policeman to apply for the room. She wasn't fond of the coppers, believing them to be traitors to the poor of Whitechapel, but her younger brother and sister moved . Fred Billings in the moment Bridget's back was turned, and she seemed to have little say in the matter.

Emily had been a quite horrible child.

But Emily grown-up was a different matter. She was still a cockney girl, but now she had a certain elegance, a style. The fighting toughness was still there - and she needed i. or Boots, back from the trenches, was blind, and Emily was to prove the mainstay, the breadwinner, and the love of his life.

Emily had been a quite horrible child. Pushy, rough, and none too clean (for it must have been Emily who passed on her head-lice to the Adams family), she had been the bane of Mrs Adams and her children who lived next door, and especially she had been a trial to Boots, who had avoided her whenever he could.

Very disappointed! After reading and loving the first of the Adams Family saga's and falling in love with the characters, I thought this was a book about the wonderful Emily who had definitely made her mark in the first book. If you read a title that says 'Our Emily' and the introduction is about her and what happens to her then that is what you expect to read about. Unfortunately, Emily made rare appearances in this book and it was more about Sammy and Susie and Sammy's up and coming enterprises. If I wanted to read about those two I wouldn't have bothered spending my hard earned money on 'Our Emily' What a disaster!
One very unhappy reader Mary Jane Staples!

When I left England 8 years ago, I gave a huge box full of this Adams Family saga to my Nan. She sadly passed away and no one knew where the books went. I'd read them all and loved the whole collection. So now, I'm collecting them on my kindle, never to be lost again.

I rated this book 5 star as it is the type of story I love. It was full of detail and you felt you were part of the family all the way through. It is very descriptive of the area of where the family live and so full of detail of their family life. You just have to keep reading to see what happens next.

I love the history of the Addams family...I enjoy reading all about the lifestyle of the East End in those early years

So in "Our Emily", book 2 in the Adams family chronicles, we have the kids all pretty much grown up.

Boots is back from the war, married and making due with his disability until an operation hopefully gives him his freedom back.
Ned and Lizzy are building a family, Tommy trying to find work in a depressed economy and Sammy making a killing in his various business ventures. Emily is still very much Emily, excelling in her workplace but feeling a failure as a wife.

The title is a bit of a misnomer as the book dwells equally as much on Sammy and his enterprises (and possible romance) as it does on Emily and Boots. (In fact, the cover picture is of Susie, not Emily at all, although they got the hair color wrong)

I found this book weaker than the the first one (Down Lambeth Way). It seemed to rely too heavily on cheeky banter/ flirting than real happenings and some of the humor was rather off color. I especially didn't like the flirting carried on by married individuals to those not their mates.
It is still a good story but some bits were disappointing to me.

CONTENT:
SEX: A few brief, non-explicit-but-still-tmi-moments, (may not be appropriate for young readers); some off color humor and innuendos, frank talk about making love, conception/ contraception, as well as illegitimacy and sowing wild oats.
VIOLENCE: A few get beat up (not described blow for blow)
PROFANITY: G, JC, B's
MY RATING: PG-13 (for sexual content)

"Our Emily" is the second book in the Adams books by Mary Jane Staples. Young Emily Adams is finally married to blinded Robert Adams. Times may hard for Emily and Robert, they have the love support of Robert's brothers Tommy and Sammy along with his sister Lizzy and the Chinese Lady. But after his sight is restored, it leads to many positive things for the Adams family.

This is the second book in the series, and it just keeps getting better. The character's are rich and plot keeps the reader wanting more from the Adams family
