5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for all farming folk 30 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The tulip Girl is set in the post World War 2 era when small communities rallied round their neighbours and friends and where gossip was rife.
Full of love, jealousy and an intrigeing twist this book is hard to put down. From the first to the last it is full of an air of true farming families and communities, proving that even in the eye of total devastation diversity will prove the best way forward.

The Tulip Girl. Margaret Dickinson.---- Oh my goodness me she really knows how to tell a story. I got absolutely carried away with this one from the very beginning to the very end, A woman I didn't even know mentioned she'd read it and I thought I'd look and see if I could find it as a Kindle Book--- YES--- so I bought it, so glad I did, I was in buckets of tears at the end,It moved me so much that I have now just purchased another of hers ( The Fleethaven Trilogy ) I Haven't read her books before, but I know I'm going to enjoy reading a lot more of them. WELL DONE MARGARET.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tulip Girl 23 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Margaret Dickinson, what a great author, I think one of the best I've ever read. Keeps the story rolling with the most unexpected twists going all the way through. I have to admit that when I finish her books, I feel saddened as I'm sorry to have no more to read, now that must sum up the talent of this lady's writing.
