5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed
Thoroughly enjoyed all 3 books in the Jarrow series, well worth reading. I was captivated in all three and could not wait to start the next one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review: A Child of Jarrow
Having thoroughly enjoyed the first of the Jarrow Tirlogy I embarked upon a reading of this second story with enthusiasm and was not disappointed.
I was gripped from the start. It was necessary to repeat some of the first story (I suppose that this was in case the reader had not read or perhaps remembered the first.} This was not done immediately but skilfully...

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to Jarrow, 28 Dec 2011
This review is from: A CHILD OF JARROW: the compelling sequel to The Jarrow Lass (The Jarrow Trilogy Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
This trilogy of books is a lovely read which gives an insight into how it was living in Jarrow in the early years, the hardships of one family and how they manage to get by day after day, a great holiday read, wanted the series to continue after the third book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Child of Jarrow by Janet MacLeod Trotter, 15 May 2013

This review is from: A CHILD OF JARROW: the compelling sequel to The Jarrow Lass (The Jarrow Trilogy Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this story very much. Janet MacLeod Trotter's characters are totally believable and she describes people's circumstances in a way that opens one's eyes to the extreme poverty and hardship experienced during the depression.

This review is from: A CHILD OF JARROW: the compelling sequel to The Jarrow Lass (The Jarrow Trilogy Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
This is a great read and I have enjoyed every page as with the last book in this series it has a good strong story line. I will certainly be looking out for this author in future.

This review is from: A CHILD OF JARROW: the compelling sequel to The Jarrow Lass (The Jarrow Trilogy Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
I read the three of this trilogy and have to say that the second book was the most depressing. Research was good. The trilogy itself was depressing and I had to stop reading the third book so far. Author will never be Catherine Cookson.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review: A Child of Jarrow, 14 Mar 2012
This review is from: A CHILD OF JARROW: the compelling sequel to The Jarrow Lass (The Jarrow Trilogy Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Having thoroughly enjoyed the first of the Jarrow Tirlogy I embarked upon a reading of this second story with enthusiasm and was not disappointed.
I was gripped from the start. It was necessary to repeat some of the first story (I suppose that this was in case the reader had not read or perhaps remembered the first.} This was not done immediately but skilfully inserted at an appropriate point.
If you have read the first book and enjoyed it you will be most interested to see how Kate continued her life.
It would be a pity to reveal the plot so all I can say is that it is a well crafted, truly authentically historical in detail and a gripping yarn in a similar style to Catherine Cooksons.

The second in the Jarrow Trilogy. Building on the Jarrow Lass and leaving me wanting more and moving on to the Return to Jarrow at 5.00 o'clock in the morning. During the Christmas break I read all three as they were addictive. I was Kate and Catherine; I felt their pain and pleasure; I was totally transported into their world and smelt the stench of the Slack and the sweet smelling grass of Ravensworth. Brilliant descriptions, in depth explanations, all were handled with care and vigour.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Child of Jarrow, 9 Jan 2012
This review is from: A CHILD OF JARROW: the compelling sequel to The Jarrow Lass (The Jarrow Trilogy Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
An excellent story and written in Macleod's recognisable hand. Full of colour laughter and heartache. Just make sure your Kindle batteries are well charged because you need to read all three books! You won't want to put them down. In fact I've bought the paper backs for my daughter, since she does not have a Kindle, and she too is finding it an excellent read.

a sympathetic and beautiful written story about a less fortunate time, well worth the reading time and to reflect on what we could learn from this book
