I must thank my wife for finding this excellent trilogy. Actually she managed to get it much cheaper than it is being offered at the moment but I still think it's worth it. The story starts in the early part of the 1900's and follows three generations of two families through two world wars and up till around the 1970's. Each book really follows one generation but many of the characters remain throughout. Set mainly in rural Lincolnshire the story is complex and meaty enough to make it a really good read - certainly I went straight through from one book to the next without a break and really found it difficult to put down. Some of it is enlightening and thought provoking too, as you follow changing attitudes, particularly towards women and illegitimacy. It also describes the difficulties of farming and rural life in those earlier times. It's not all sweetness and light and there are some really sad moments along with the highs but it does end reasonably happily. The Kindle version is excellent with virtually no typos. One piece of advice - at the end of each book is the same epilogue, presumably in case the reader only reads the first book; DON'T read it until the end of book three as it actually gives away some information you are better discovering later.

If these books do not bring tears of joy and tears of sadness to your eyes then nothing will. This is a compelling trilogy of novels each told from the point of view of three successive generations of Lincolnshire women. The first spans the first world war, the second spans the second world war, and the third takes place in the 1950's.

The subject matter primarily concerns the love/hate relationships present within a pair of families in a close-knit farming community - the destructive power of hate and the healing power of love. Woven into the fabric is a fascinating insight into the progress of technology and the emancipation of women over the period described. I would recommend the books to anybody who enjoys an emotional roller-coaster and is searching for a satisfying love story (however unrealistic the relationship of the lovers it might be).

I am continually puzzled at the poor publishing quality of eBooks. I can not understand why they are held to a lower standard than their printed counterparts. I found 64 errors in this trilogy that should have been corrected by a proof-reader or an editor. At an average of 21 errors per book, that is actually quite respectable, in my experience, for an eBook.

For example, the epilogue for book 3, is "printed" at the end of book 1 and book 2 where it makes no sense whatsoever because it talks about characters that only appear in book 3. I accidentally started reading it at the end of book 1 and, annoyingly, it gave away the ending of book 3. My advice? DO NOT READ THE EPILOGUE UNTIL RIGHT AT THE END OF THE TRILOGY.

My assumption is that the publisher simply wants to make a fast buck. They already have the printed version, so they scan it in, put it through a spell checker and imagine that the job is done.

Fabulous story which I didn't want to end, the fact it was a trilogy was great because as soon as you finished the first book you just couldn't wait to read the next. I love Margaret Dickinson' s books but this was by far the best yet. I'm not sure what to do with myself now as I really will miss all the characters!!

I have read a few novels from Margaret Dickinson and loved them all. I can thoroughly recommend this trilogy which I downloaded in March, on offer for £1.49 which was great but I would have gladly paid full price for it.

My main intention was to read one book then go on to something else in my library before I read the next one but I ended up reading one after the other, I was just drawn into the story and all the characters.

I can thoroughly recommend this book, if you are a fan of M.D. buy it now it is absolutely brilliant and if you haven't read this author before, try it now, I am sure you will become a fan.

I chose this tittle simply because I wanted to try out my new kindle. However, I really enjoyed it because you were able to follow the characters lives and to know what happened to them. I felt i was actually there in Lincolnshire. I shall be looking for more M.D. books for my kindle

WHY this got such good reviews is utterly beyond me. It's simplistic pap. The main character, 20, manages to run a whole farm virtually single handed, helped by the local lad who is besotted with her (of course) and she inherits the farm (of course) and battlesthrough many adversities (of course) to come out at the end of the book happily ever after (of course).

I plodded through the first book of this trilogy, cursing my stupidity for wasting good money on it. To cap it all, at the end of the 1st book there was an epilogue that brought me up to date with no need to read the other 2 books anyway, bit of a nuisance IF I'd been enjoying them and all in all what a wast of money and time..

This is a book that I was always keen to pick up and make time for.
I enjoyed the time span. and the fact that one could follow the familes through the generations.
certainly an Author that I will look for in the future.
