Book Description

5 July 2001
It's a cold winter's night in 1906 but nothing can dampen the high spirits of Constance Bannerman and her fellow skivvy and best friend, Nella. For tomorrow, Constance can escape her life of drudgery at Doctor Sowerby's home in Newcastle by marrying her handsome sweetheart, the prosperous John Edington. But Constance's last night of servitude is to end in terror. As a final act of spite, Mrs Sowerby throws her out of the house late that evening where she is met by the doctor's dissolute son, Gerald. In the front yard, surrounded by freezing fog, Gerald attacks and rapes her. Distraught and unsure of what to do, Constance marries John the next day with a heavy heart. She cannot tell John what has happened, for his is a respectable family, and shame will not allow her to reveal the truth to Nella. But the worst is yet to come, for John Edington himself has a shocking secret that will make Constance feel more alone than ever...

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, compelling read. 13 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Warning: Don't start reading A Dream of her Own when you have things to do that must get done. You might not be able to put this book down. This is a wonderfullly compelling read that pulls you right into the world of turn of the century Newcastle. I've never been there but the setting is so incredibly well bortrayed, I walked the streets with Constance and Nella. These are two wonderful characters, powerless, poor and uneducated, but strong, human and stalwart in their refuusal to be bowed by adversity. These two survivors handle hardships and setbacks with courage and are so convincingly drawn that as I closed the book, I was hoping their futures proved to be as settled and contented as the last chapter promised.

This is my favorite Benita Brown book!

This book has scandal, romance, betrayal. It has just everything, I just didn't want to put it down, this is the kind of book I could read several times and still enjoy.

This is my most recommended book ever!!
