Lily Jenkin, a collier’s daughter in South Wales, waits forlornly at the pit head as miner’s bodies are bought to the surface. There has been an explosion underground and her brothers are missing. So begins the story of a working class woman in a pit village, graphically drawn by the Rees. Black Diamonds is a novel about love, class division, maternal jealousy and forgiveness. Rees writes with passion and, I found, her attention to detail illuminated the mundane grind of daily life. As the story progresses, Lily grows in confidence and learns to deal with the complexities of marriage to a minster, the temptation of a new life and wagging tongues. What more can I say without spoiling the ending?

What a great read! Lynette's description of the village and town in which the story was mainly set is so vivid that you could close your eyes and 'walk around' there, hearing, seeing and smelling everything. It was facinating for me because some of my ancestors also emigrated to Salt Lake City and became Mormons only a few years before the story was set and I can now imagine what a difficult journey it must have been for them. Well done Lynette on this first Seasons of Change book and I can't wait to read the follow-up!

This is a lovely story based deep in a Welsh valley, it portrays everything about how life was at this time, strong family ties, dangerous working conditions in the mines and how people struggled just to put food on the table. The author obviously researched life at this time in the valleys and it is 'her eye for detail' that makes the book so believable and informative.

A totally believable main character and I found myself drawn into her world every time I picked the book up.

This book will appeal to you if you enjoy a nice easy read, it gives just the right combination of happy, sad and suspense!

I don't like reviews that give too much away about the plot, but would highly recommend you read it, can't wait for the sequel!

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. The characters are realistic and you felt like you were there with them. So well written and researched. I can't wait for the next book to come out. A very enjoyable read.
