Product Description

Product Description

1877, Durham.

After a traumatic incident, a woman gives birth to a child and is persuaded by her husband to give him up to a local couple.

On the same dark and stormy night, a local pit owner turns his wife out on to the bleak moors, telling her son she is evil. The woman is never seen again.

1897, Durham

These childhood events, seemingly unrelated, have shaped the characters of these two unloved boys, now men. And they in turn are about to change the lives of two innocent young women, as the past reaches out and casts a shadow over the present.

I had never read a book by this author before. But saw it on Amazon and it sounded good. It proved to be so; it was very hard to put it down once started.

I love Elizabeth Gill's novels and read this one in one sitting. I do not like reviews that give away the plot but suffice it so say that if you love stories about real people, struggling to make ends meet in challenging circumstances, then you'll love her books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life! 26 Sep 2013
By Radiojock TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Life in a pit town, with all its quirks, snobbishness and fighting. It seems people are always looking for happiness but find it hard. Marriages torn apart, neighbours who gossip and everything else makes life difficult, but eventually, things settle down. Vinia, Joe, Tom, Dryden and everyone else each have their own stories in this fascinating look at life in a small village.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another enjoyable novel by Elizabeth Gill 28 Jan 2014
By Iff
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this novel and found it very difficult to put down. You really get an insight into how hard life was in the late 1800's and how prejudiced people were.

Found it a little slow to start with, but then got quite gripped. A bit disappointed with the ending but that was a personal opinion.
