Review: A Child of Jarrow
on 14 March 2012
Having thoroughly enjoyed the first of the Jarrow Tirlogy I embarked upon a reading of this second story with enthusiasm and was not disappointed.
I was gripped from the start. It was necessary to repeat some of the first story (I suppose that this was in case the reader had not read or perhaps remembered the first.} This was not done immediately but skilfully inserted at an appropriate point.
If you have read the first book and enjoyed it you will be most interested to see how Kate continued her life.
It would be a pity to reveal the plot so all I can say is that it is a well crafted, truly authentically historical in detail and a gripping yarn in a similar style to Catherine Cooksons.
