Description

There's no street like Orchard Street, and no year like 1951. So much happened to me and my family, and to Teresa and hers, that our lives could never be the same. Some very strange things are happening in Orchard Street. Ossie's dad is doing something illegal under the house; everyone is talking about the waterfront strike; adults are behaving in odd ways towards each other - and Ossie is falling in love. As he moves out of the safety zone of childhood, Ossie begins to understand that life will never be predictable again. Also available as an eBookshow more
