Product Description

Review

There's a tear in every chapter (Steve Craggs, Northern Echo)

A super tale that lingers long in the memory (Bolton Evening News)

Many bitter tears are shed (Books Magazine)

A compelling historical saga of triumph over injustice. [...] Just right for lovers of Catherine Cookson. (Reading Chronicle and Bracknell News)

Meg fits into a tradition before television when families sat around a fire and told stories. Not epic stories but the tales of their families and friends, an oral history of a place and its people. Her place and people are Wednesbury in the West Midlands. (Guernsey Evening Post)

This old-fashioned drama has some wonderful villains and villainesses and at the end the most unlikely hero' (Beverley Guardian (Driffield Post))

This tale of jealousy and the power of good over evil races to the final paragraph (Coventry Evening Telegraph)

Book Description

Emma Price seems doomed to the workhouse after being cruelly raped by a colliery owner. But the kindly folk of Wednesbury take her in and her life is changed forever

Format: Hardcover
Another brilliant book from Meg Hutchinson. This book was eagerly awaited... and well worth the wait. The story keeps you involved the whole way through, making you feel the emotions the characters are experiencing. Based around the "Cut" and canal system as are most of her books, apart from Bitter Seed which was a little different but still very good. I come from Oldbury just on the borders of "The Black Country", it's brilliant to read her books and be able to visualise the canals and the villages as they were. All in all a brilliant book from a brilliant author, and i'm already waiting for the next one......

Boy! We are so lucky to be born now instead of back in Victorian times when someone with a little money could decide your fate and that of your entire family or even an entire village. I wish the covers didn't look so sappy because it really doesn't reflect the struggle to survive that these poor unfortunate people had to go through. The heroin in this novel gains your sympathy and you can't put it down because you want her to be happy and find a life worth living. I loved it!

Have read a few books by this author and have enjoyed them , the twist at the end was very unexpected and made for a good ending.

When I started to read this book I did not think that I was going to enjoy it but I kept reading it and was pleased I did. As I kept reading I began to enjoy the storyline. Meg Hutchinson is one of the authors that I always it enjoy reading her books but this was abit different but enjoyable.

Have never read a book by this author but would definitely do so again. Couldn't put it down. Felt the sorrow and feelings of the heroine. And could imagine the scene.
