5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Catrin
A lovely story based on a workhouse in Pontypridd (where I was born) interesting to know how they lived at that time.
My only complaint, it ended too soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars an interesting short story, 1 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas Eve in the Workhouse - A Christmas Short Story (Kindle Edition)
This was an interesting short story, although I wonder if Christmas was celebrated this much in the workhouse, ie the decorations and meal served by the public guardians on Christmas Day?
All in all I enjoyed this short story.

This was my first book downloaded on my Kindle which was a Xmas present. Pretty appropriate don't you think? And good value at the price !

4.0 out of 5 stars My Favourite Author, 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas Eve in the Workhouse - A Christmas Short Story (Kindle Edition)
AS usual a great story based on fact. However the presentation of the E Book was very poorly done. The paragraphs were not defined properly so different portions of the story ran into one another. For that reason my rating is a 4 which is not the authors fault.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catrin Collier at her best, 4 April 2014
This review is from: Christmas Eve in the Workhouse - A Christmas Short Story (Kindle Edition)
Very moving story, and more so as its true.I'm also Welsh, and my paternal grandmother was given to another family in the street, when her mother died.She was just 9 mths old,and the year 1901…The attention to detail is so accurate, and the situation very common place. Great read.

I loved this story from start to finish, I couldn't put it down. The story speeds along at an exciting pace but the ending was predictable unfortunately.

This wasn't quite what I was expecting. I guess I was expecting a Dickensian workhouse setting. It was well written and I enjoyed it.
