This latest single features a new, non-album track. Sprawl by Fime. Licensed under Creative Commons Attibution 3. Luckily when I suggested "The Leaving of Liverpool" it turned out she already knew the song. Since she had a much longer history with it, I asked her to choose her preferred verses from the various ones we found.
I knew things would work out well when I heard her initial sample singing a portion of the song -- she seemed to know exactly the tempo and style I was going for, even before I gave her a guide track! Since I sing by ear sight-reading music is not one of my skills , it was a fun learning experience. Hearing billiebee's wonderful voice really made me want to rise to the occasion and try to be better with my own singing. The lower part was a bit out of my range so I hope it sounds okay. Just my take on it -- YMMV. According to the entry on Wikipedia , the various lyrics seem to fall under two main themes: going away to be a sailor, and -- the one we went with -- going away to be a migrant worker.
I think billiebee mentioned growing up with a version by the Dubliners. Most importantly, special thanks and high five to billiebee : thanks for lending your talent, for your patience and encouragement, and for your time in working with me on this! Let me know when you want to do another collab. That's really lovely - and rightfully, the sea applauds you at the end. By cruel fate they are separated in Liverpool: younger of the sisters remains on the ship and sails to New York, the other one has to stay in Liverpool.

Both build new lives but none of them is easy. The whole story is beautifully written with many twists and very w This is my second book by Maureen Lee and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good life story with many twists. The whole story is beautifully written with many twists and very well presented main characters. Kept me turning pages as I wanted to know what the next happened. However the end was disappointing. Like the writer did have time to write this book anymore. While there were many questions which both sisters should answer and reveal between them both what happened in their lives.

Maureen Lee is the master of writing about everyday life without making it boring. She has really elaborated characters and there's something to love about all of them, teher are no 'bad guys'. The only problem with the book was the skipping of 'erotic' scenes.
About Molly and Tom she simply wrote 'Than tehey made love' and it was done. And what's more important: Annemarie! I was waiting for the scene, when she is able to cope with It's been my favourite book since I first read it years ago. I was waiting for the scene, when she is able to cope with her fears and her past and finally make love with someone, but Lee simply skipped it!
She marries to Bobby and suddenly they have a son. I was so very disappointed. Dec 29, Hil rated it it was ok Shelves: challenge It's not really my kind of thing, so please bear that in mind.
It's not that bad a book really, but to me it was kind of dull. A family becomes divided after a horrible thing happens, and this tells the story of the next 20 years of the family in Ireland, Liverpool and New York. I liked Annemarie's story best as she had amnesia and had a baby and forgot all about it, and the ending was plea I bought this book because I though it was the novel of the BBC TV drama of the same name - it's not.
I liked Annemarie's story best as she had amnesia and had a baby and forgot all about it, and the ending was pleasing as well. Everyone else's story was a bit blah.follow url
Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics
A wonderful story of two young girls living in the worst possible times, being separated and seeing what life they end up living. A brilliant read and one that I would recommend to anyone. Lots of reference to the 's war which had thrown you into feeling for those who had been lucky enough to survive the blitz.
A really amazing story. Praise to the Author. Jan 09, Hege rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , read I loved this story! Normally if I find a book very good I just can't put the book down. But this book is the kind of good books you want to last forever. You are eager to find out how it will end, but at the same time you don't want the story to end ; So I have been reading a few pages now and then, letting the two different stories about Anne and Mollie soak in.

To view it, click here. Another classic Maureen Lee book. I did feel the ending was rushed and this could have well been a triology as Mollie and Annmarie re-built their lives once they had found one another, the ending seemed far fetched which is my only criticism of the novel and hence why I have only given it three stars. Mar 24, Molly Guy rated it really liked it. I really loved this book, and Mollie for that fact but felt deep sadness at how everyone in her life was either killed or wasnt around, when Tom was killed it actually made me cry and i wondered why the author had killed him off, nevertheless i really enjoyed this book and will miss it dearly.
Feb 16, Susan Wallace rated it really liked it Shelves: audio. Just re listened, I love Maureen Lee books, I've eye read most of them, I'd love to listen to all of them also, but I don't want to use a audible credit on a stories I know. Got addicted to them when youngest daughter lived in London.
Aug 14, Jo Barrett rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Anyone. I Love Maureen Lee's books, evertime I read one of hers I feel myself going back in time to feel the characters in the books.
