Hull, 1874.

The beautiful, mysterious Jewel Newmarch, adopted as a baby, turns heads wherever she goes - her exotic looks point to her origins far away from the streets of Hull. Even at her cousin Elizabeth's wedding, she is the belle of the ball. But as she looks on at the happy, newly married couple she feels a restlessness and intense longing to know her own roots.

And so she decides to return to her birthplace in America, taking the bride's twin sister Clara as her companion. In unearthing the mysteries of Jewel's past the girls realize that this is a life-changing voyage of discovery for both of them, as they learn important lessons about family, friendship, love and home. But most importantly, love . . .

Came up to all my expectations of a Val Wood Novel. Capitivated from start to finish. A brilliant story and great description of social life and history of the time. Val Wood always does her homework first. I can't wait for her next book! I've read them all so far and never been disappointed.

I have read most of Val Woods Books, and enjoyed them, but this one was so bitty, never really concentrating on one person. The picture on the front annoyed me too, not a depiction of the main character, if indeed there was one. A lot of waffle, and as someone else has said, if this had been my first Book, it would also have been my last.

Loved this book, read it in just 2 days, but it felt like a sequel all along and I have since found out that this is the sequel to first "doorstep girls" and then "far from home" so you should read these first.

My wife got into reading Val Wood after she bought "The Kitchen Maid", now she has read all her books(bar the latest) and has nearly finished the latest one from Amazon "Homecoming Girls", she loves them!

I have read a few of Val Woods books and found them to be very good.. but this one, cannot seem to get into the story line.. its just goes on and on, and nothing to make you feel like you want to continue with the book, I am glad this is not the first of Val Wood i have read otherwise i would not want to read another.

This is my 6th Val Wood book, and this was by far the most difficult to get into. ¼ of the way through and getting better. But for me,not as good as the previous ones.

This book I didn't find so enthralling as her Gypsy Girl which I read previously. The plot was situated in Hull,England and America in 1876. Cholera was mentioned in the frontispiece and was never mentioned again throughout the book. If it was so prevalent in Victorian Times you would think one of the characters would at least come across it even if reading from.a newspaper. The characters in themselves were feasible however as to how they were connected so I enjoyed a little bit of the book.
