    • Very enjoyable I like this authors way of writing she makes you feel as though you are there in that century. I enjoyed the story, and in the end the main characters got together, so another happy ending. I will be reading another of hers next.


    • Great. story well written.This is a not put down book,xurdtWas kept in suspence until near the end . I never get tired of reading Rita Bradshaw.

    • A young girl scratching a living with her fishermen family in a row of poor cottages on the coast when a terrible storm changes her life for ever. This story pulls at your heart strings as true love never had a chance with the rich /poor divides running though the tale. All true love stories have a good ending but you have to cry buckets full of tears to get therewheres my hankie.


    • excellent story set before the first world war and continued into it.I always find it fasinating how others lived in those days with no benifits and social services just reliant on family and friends or their own initaitivea really good read.
