Reans Girls

Adapted by Kaite O'Reilly.

In 1973, with Enoch Powell's speech still resounding through the Black Country, Jacinta arrives in Whitmore Reans, Wolverhampton, from Chile - shocked, disorientated and needing somewhere to live.

Her husband has been thrown out of their country for political reasons: she has a young son and no references.

Her search brings her into contact with a network of other women who have come to Whitmore Reans from all around the world.

They all have stories to tell and they have all found a way to survive in a forbidding new town, not least by getting together at the public baths for a long soak.
