5.0 out of 5 stars triumph over adversity
Rita Bradshaw brings to life the poverty, the living conditions(you can almost smell the coaldust)and the despair of the general strike better than any history books. As you turn the pages you will actually feel that you are visiting the North East mining community and re living the general strike. Add to this the lifelike characters- not all of them nice- and the story...

3.0 out of 5 stars No Surprises but nice heart warming story.
You know exactly what is going to happen by reading the back of the book so there are strictly no surprises anywhere, it's formulaic in the extreme but it still remains a nice heart warming story if not the best of it's genre.

The trouble is there are so many of the same hard luck stories that you've read it all before in one book or another.

5.0 out of 5 stars triumph over adversity, 1 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Rita Bradshaw brings to life the poverty, the living conditions(you can almost smell the coaldust)and the despair of the general strike better than any history books. As you turn the pages you will actually feel that you are visiting the North East mining community and re living the general strike. Add to this the lifelike characters- not all of them nice- and the story of Carries battle with adversity. Mix well together and you have the best book that Rita Bradshaw has written to date.

Excellent book, from the first few pages the story keeps you glued. I felt like personally knew the characters by the end of the book. This is the first book I have read by Rita Bradshaw but I will be reading a lot more.

Nice story enjoyed it but coming towards the end found it dragging on a bit.Could have been a better read if speeded up.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Surprises but nice heart warming story., 5 Jan 2010
You know exactly what is going to happen by reading the back of the book so there are strictly no surprises anywhere, it's formulaic in the extreme but it still remains a nice heart warming story if not the best of it's genre.

The trouble is there are so many of the same hard luck stories that you've read it all before in one book or another.

The actual tale is a grim reminder of how hard the Northerners had it during the great depression and the poverty everyone had to suffer, the characters are very likeable, very lifelike and their personal stories heart breaking in places but as I've said before you know exactly how everything is going to pan out.

Rita does a good job and it's a good tale but the story has been done so often you might get a little bored nearer the end.
