I just finished reading this first book by Anne Booth! It's really good read and so evocative of life round here (I'm a Lancashire Lass too!). I could imagine all my mum's family living next door to this one with their stories running parallel. I loved how Hannah was just like anyone today making choices and mistakes and trying to survive against so many sad and unfortunate odds and also to try and have a life of her own and to live it in extremely difficult (and true)circumstances. I was really moved by how hard life was and how they had to take whatever came and just push on through it all to survive. I appreciated how girls like Hannah and her Aunts just had to embrace love wherever they could knowing in a way we don't these days that it could be just for a fleeting season and that there was no turning back or help once the product of that love became flesh and bone and brought the next generation into life and history. I was glad to see in this book that poverty couldn't quell their passions - means there's hope for us all in the current economic climate! I loved it and can see this as a brave first story telling from a very promising new author. I am looking forward to the next one.

What an excellent read, a brilliant book that I could not put down. I became absolutely absorbed in Hannah's story and felt that I had almost been transported back in time. Much care has been taken to reflect life of the working classes in the 19th century and how hard life must have been. If there is a sequel to this I would definitely buy.

A brilliant story about Hannah and her family and the hardships she encountered when living in Lancashire in the 19th Century. I found this book difficult to put down and really hope there is a sequel to this story!

I have been researching my own family history over the last few years so I was very interested to read about someone else's family and what they had found out. As soon as the book arrived from Amazon I started reading and found I couldn't put it down. I wanted to know what was going to happen next and within a few hours I had finished the book. The characters are very interesting and are based on real people. I was transported back in time and given an insight into the difficult living conditions of that particular period. The book is very well written and easy to read and I highly recommend it. I hope the author has written a sequel because I can't wait to read it.

By Janet on 22 Jan. 2013
Format: Paperback
`A Tragedy Too Far' is a fascinating fact-and-fiction work, based on the author's own ancestors. Anne Booth weaves the lives of weavers in the 19C into a compelling and touching story, using accurate accounts and historical events. There is love, lust, loss and lives and, being another Lancashire lass, it all rings true. It was `grim up North' but this gem of a book is a fast, gripping and rewarding read. Let us have the sequel soon, please!
