Thanks to Carolyn Baines for this first review of ‘Martha’s Girls’
This book keeps the reader’s attention throughout. The characters are brought to life so well on the page that you want to keep reading to find out what happens to them all. I found the musical content particularly interesting and very evocative of the era. My mother in law also enjoyed it tremendously and can’t wait for Alrene’s next novel.

I am thoroughly enjoying Martha’s Girls. Knowing Alrene, I knew it would be a fantastic read, but now that I am a third of the way through, I am an awe struck fan!!! The characters have drawn me in, the story is well crafted and keeping me reading until late at night. What a well deserved success!
Hi Alrene, what a fantastic read thoroughly enjoyed it, and brought back so many memories of Belfast, the sayings and humour. Hope you will consider a sequel. Margaret xx
