I loved this book and think some of the reviews are without doubt uncalled for. It may not be everyone`s type of read - `historical` and feel some of the comments written are possibly due to the genre of the book and not the writing. This is Marion`s first book and I for one would be thrilled if I could write such a story - I couldn't put it down and thoroughly enjoyed it. Don't despair at some of the comments, Marion, they are insensitive and judgemental - I hope you don't allow such negativity to upset you - the majority of us loved the book and cant wait for the second one. I wish you all the luck in the world with your writing. Writing is a gift and you have it. Loads of love to you. xx

this was a brilliant first book telling the treatment of unmarried mothers and the churches so called help and based around a brilliant story well done to the author ... as for reviewers I see that there is a very nasty comment which in my opinion is uncalled for cant understand why you would go to the bother to post a comment if you did not like the book( mind boggles ) ive downloaded books and after reading the first few pages and trying to get through a few chapters I know its not for me but would never go and leave a review telling them there book is crap ..the word nasty person keeps springing to mind .

A very thought provoking tale of tough times not so very long ago, a great glimpse at history through real people. Fantastic descriptions that really did put one’s mind right there at that time. Could Marion Fellows be a new Catherine Cookson for the Midlands? Let’s have more please.

This is one of those books you cant put down, a real page turner, with twists, only half way through, dont want it to end and already hoping the author has a second book in the making.

Michael McMahon wants a better life for his cherished little family so he goes to England to find work and then sends for them to join him. When Mary his wife and the two children Bridie and Jamie arrive at their new home it quickly becomes apparent Bridie will have to earn some money to help keep them all. Trusting the local priest to help them they soon reluctantly agree Bridie must go in to service and she sets off with Father O’Connor to Oldfell Hall where her life soon takes another turn when she meets a young man by the river and falls in love.

This is a lovely read. Bridie is a wonderful character who will have you feeling every emotion in the struggles she endures. It also highlights what could happen to unmarried pregnant girls in Ireland when the Church took a hand in helping them. Despite hardship, Bridie finds sanctuary with generous and kind hearted people from all walks of life on her journey and makes something of herself whilst she waits for her reunion, never faltering from her absolute belief in the man she loves.

For those who love the historical genre this book will be a welcome addition to their library.

I am at a loss as to why anyone would review this book with less than 5 stars,can't please everyone I expect.... But for me personally Oh it was a great story, I love a book which transports me into the character and the time it's set and this Novel did just that, I couldn't put it down.... Well done Marion and I eagerly await the next installment. This is why I love Kindle I have and keep finding genuinely fantastic new Authors and little gems of stories, I may otherwise never have found...

Have given 5 stars rating due to a wonderful, poignant, well written story. This was heart rending , most enjoyable read from start to finish. What Bridie had to endure was unbelievable and her courage and inspiration shone through. Throughout, Marion Fellows brought this story and characters to life for me which brought a perspective as to what happened due to that era in time. Thoroughly enjoyed reading , brought a tear or to throughout for me. Ending superb. Read this for yourself!! Can't wait to read more of Marion F allows books!!

I loved this book another one I could not put down until the end. The story of an Irish family who came to England for a better life only for it not to happen. Bridie is a strong character who meets a young man by the river and falls in love, Who is that young man? well you will have to read the book to find that out. Bridie is a very strong character who knows what she wants and is determined to get it despite all the hardship along the way. This tells of the way Ireland and some of the nun's treated the unmarried mothers of the time.
