Book Description

For Eveleen Hardcastle life gets no better than growing up on Pear Tree Farm in the Lincolnshire countryside. Her family works hard for the Dunsmore estate and Eveleen finds it impossible to resist the charms of their employer's son, Stephen Dunsmore. But Jimmy, ever quick to antagonize, ensures that his sister's clandestine trysts do not remain so for long.

Mary Hardcastle reacts to the news of her daughter's affair with a shocking ferocity, which seems to be borm more of bitterness than maternal protectiveness. But what is it that fuels Mary's resentment towards her daughter? Unable to ignore her own feelings, Eveleen continues to meet Stephen in secret. But deception has a cruel price to pay when her beloved father is found dead from a heart attack. And worse yet, Stephen, far from providing Eveleen with the comfort she craves, deserts her in her hour of need and callously evicts the Hardcastles from the farm.

Suddenly homeless, Eveleen is left to take the family reins and she fights to make a new life for her family in Nottinghamshire. And then she makes a stunning discovery about her mother's past which changes all their lives for ever...

    4.0 out of 5 stars The museum; the heroine. 17 Nov. 2009
    Format:Paperback
    The heroine of this soothing and soothingly predictable romantic novel is a beautiful (of course), young country girl, Eveleen, who successfully emerges hopeful, and cleverly virginal, from sexual oppression by the squire's son and from the trauma of being driven from her tied home. Eveleen nobly takes responsibility for her mother and her feckless brother on their journey, first to work for a hypocrite Christian Uncle and thence to the Dark Satanic Mills of Victorian and Edwardian Nottingham. The mother, Mary is driven temporarily witless by her husband's death and the consequent removal of the family from their tied holding and she becomes a greater burden for the youthful heroine. By pure chance, Eveleen finds work in a factory which turns out to be owned by the handsome (of course) old flame of her mother's, who might have been her (illegitimate) father. Fortunately for Eveleen and the story line, it turns out not to be so, because the old flame's son, Mr Richard, is equally handsome, dark, and presumably, heir to his father's successful business, and naturally, he falls in love, on sight, with Eveleen. He becomes her knight in shining armour and moves tactfully but inevitably to protect and save her from her several tribulations. Despite her brother James getting her cousin Rebecca pregnant and running away to sea, at last, everything ends with prospects of happiness all round, except for poor old Dad, who died early in the saga, and Rebecca who dies in childbirth leaving Eveleen with the baby. I found the author's ploy of keeping Eveleen ever pure, yet making her a mother by proxy at once ingenious, and amusing, yet touchingly realistic for the times portrayed. Read more ›

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Spell binding read 10 Oct. 2007
    Format:Paperback
    This is not the kind of book I would normally read, but been stuck in a quiet period at work there was nothing else to do so I started to read the first few pages.

    My typical book choice would be a fantasty or a Crime Thriller so I really didn't expect much, how wrong could I be?

    Within the first few pages I was hooked, the book is so well written and very engaging. I truely cared about the characters, laughing, crying and shouting along with them.

    I finished the book in two days and am now going to buy the sequal, a wholely unexpected but gratefully welcomed addition to my reading list!

    Whatever your taste I reccommend you read this book and get in touch with true humanity. :)

    5.0 out of 5 stars A great book by Margaret Dickinson 29 Dec. 2011
    Format:Paperback
    I really enjoyed this novel by Margaret Dickinson

    Eveleen, her mother, father and brother live in Lincolnshire, Eveleen is in love with the squire sons, Stephen, when suddenly one day she finds her dad face down in a ditch dead from a heart attack, her mother goes hysterical, her brother is not much help as he is always causing trouble. Eveleen gets betrayed by Stephen and they have to leave there farmhouse, they end up going to live with her mother's brother, who holds a grudge with Eveleen mother Mary, over what happened 20 years ago in her past.

    Eveleen uncle has a daughter Rebecca, and her brother Jimmy who is the cousin of Rebecca takes a shine to her and she ends up pregnant with his child, but obviously there are a lot of twists and turns, when the uncle finds out, they are all thrown out of the house, and Eveleen takes them to Nottingham to start a new life, but her mum is so unhappy all she ever wants to do is go back to her beloved farm in Lincolnshire.

    Eveleen finds a job in a factory, and the owners of the factory is father and son, and Mary's past comes back to haunt her, and Richard the son of the owner falls in love with Eveleen, but Eveleen does not trust men, after what happened with Stephen.

    There is a lot more to this book, but I do not want to spoil it for you avid readers of Margaret Dickinson.
