Top customer reviews
I expected the books to be very heavy going, but I was wrong. They were thoroughly absorbing with characters that I became really interested in. However don't expect books full of joy and sunshine. They do depict life as it was and mostly people didn't have a great deal to be happy about. But what makes these books compelling is the quality of the writing, and the intimate knowledge of Northern Cumbria.
