This book kept me awake well into the night with it's roller coaster story line and the twists and turns of the plot. It was quite un-put-downable!
The main character, Emma Forrest, is strong and resilliant, she has to be to withstand all that life has to throw at her - the laughter and the tears. There are the hardships and worries of living in a city during wartime. The joys of new found love and children. The sadnesses found within a mismatched marriage and the death of family and friends.
Running through the book is an undercurrent of disappointment from Emma's father and the need to keep the mill in the family. All of which influences a lot of Emma's decisions.
This book really gives you an insight into Lincolnshire life of 60 years ago, with all it's quaint customs and practices.

By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER on 20 May 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
The miller was a vastly important person in the community at one time, as all the farmers had to bring their grain to him. This book looks at the family life of the millers and how they coped with a massive engineering project in the garden, mending and patching, fearing storms which damaged sails.

The daughter in the story marries away from this environment - I thought she asked far too few questions of her husband like where did he keep going to on business and what sort of business was it. By the time she returns, sadder and wiser, with her own children, the mill has been overtaken by modern machinery and there seems little point in repairing the storm damage.

Which brings us to the modern day and the question of what do you do with a windmill? A good solution is found. This is an enjoyable look at countryside life and a way of life now lost.

I chose this book because I have read others stories by Margaret Dickinson and really enjoyed them. This book did not disappoint. The story was well written and I was engrossed, as if I was in the era. I would highly recommend this book.

I have read all Margeret's books so far and this is a particularly good one. Thoroughly enjoyed reading about a past era when everything was so different, but with some fond reminders of my own country childhood of not quite so long ago.

This novel seemed slow to develop. However, the story was entirely plausible, depicting a hard but simple daily life. As the storyline developed I became engrossed partly because there used to be a mill down the lane near my home - all fuel for my imagination. Was life like that for the people who lived in my village in South Lincolnshire so many years ago?

Beginning at the end of the First World War and taking the story through the Second World War and beyond, it's the story of a girl born to a father who wanted a son to carry on his family flour mill and the trials she had to endure through initially marrying a man of her father's choosing. The story has lots of twists and turns, heartache and happiness.

The Miller Daughter was a fantastic read. Couldn't put it down, so ended up burning the midnight oil. The people are so believable that you take sides with your favourites in the story and you feel like booing the baddies. The storyline had you laughing and crying in places. You feel as though you lived the in village at the time.

I LOVE ALL MARGARET DICKENSON BOOKS. SHE HAS AMAZING AMAGINATION. WHAT I ALSO LOVE IS THE FACT THAT ALL THE CHAPTERS ARE SHORT ONES, I DONT LIKE BOOKS WHERE CHAPTERS SEEM TO GO ON AND ON FOREVER. I READ A COUPLE OF CHAPTERS EVERY NIGHT BEFORE I SETTLE DOWN TO SLEEP. ALWAYS EAGER TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. BRILLIANT.
