I ordered this book online completely unknowing of what this ladies work was like. I am happy to say that This book I could not put down and I was taken in to the novel,the minds eye was kept alert to every detail that I read
I found this book enthralling. So much so I have bought the next chapter of Miriams life "Miriams War" Again I am taken in to this ladies life where I can feel and hear all the things Miriam sees and feels.
I would recommend everyone to buy and read this ladies works either in paper or e-reader style

I had never heard of this author before. Purchased this out of interest. Unusal and gripping book. could not put down. Have already purchased 2nd book in the series. Will certainly be purchasing more books by her if this is the quality of all her work.

both my husband and I read this book A social history book and we both enjoyed it Life in Holloway was very difficult for many inmates and when you read what they they were sent to jail for. she really worked hard while in jail so she was able to get back to her family much quicker than expected.

Molly wrote very emotionally and showed us how difficult it was for both her and the family.

I really enjoyed reading this book

I had seen the "Miriam" books a few times and read one or two intro's and decided to start with "Miriam's Early Years" which I quite enjoyed and was annoyed when it finished with her being arrested. What for? I had to know and so bought this follow on book. (I hate it when a book doesn't finish the story as I feel blackmailed into buying the next book, and I feel cheated!) But I really shouldn't have bothered. The crime was not anything we had discovered in the first book and there were few references to Miriams life in this book and she seemed to have gone through an undocumented change of character, conscience and possibly a cloning! Seriously, it was mind numbingly boring. This second book did nothing to evolve either the storyline or the characters in any meaningful way........

This type of subject matter is right up my street, so I expected to enjoy this book. Whilst the premise for the book is good, the writing is very simple and childlike in many ways, with lots of conradictions. The author goes into detail about the items in the cell being, 'all made like children's toys, unbreakable and blunt', and then goes on to say that a diet sheet and 'a copy of the prison rules and regulations hung on a nail'. Nails are not known for being blunt. I was also left wondering about the wisdom of the bell pull. I was completely at a loss to understand the sentence 'Yet, then, the impossible happened; she decided not to cry'.

I found the book to be way too descriptive, beyond what was needed to give atmosphere to it, on many occasions sentences did not follow each other in a logical order, and the punctuation was horrendous with commas everywhere which ruined the flow of the prose.

I hate having to criticise an author's work, but I only got to 12% before having to give up on this book, and I will not be reading anything else by this author.

Great story, really engaging, a fabulous read. One word of caution though, and this won't bother everyone, but the Kindle version is littered with grammatical errors and poor punctuation!

This was an interesting story, if not a little too drawn out, but as other reviewers have said, the Kindle version contains many mistakes. I did finish it but found it diffulcult to read with sentences containing perhaps one word on one line and the rest on another line, too many spaces between words, poor spelling etc. This would not put me off trying the author's other books though, if they were cheap enough!

The story line was interesting and I felt Miriam came to life for me. The portrayal of life in Holloway by the time the story began was in many ways surprisingly gentle, though the real punishment of being separated from home and family stood out in highlight. I thought the description of the execution chamber was rather gratuitous, especially with the introduction of buzzing flies. But the real bug bear was the appalling sentence structure, which frequently made no sense at all, spelling errors and misuse throughout of full stops, commas and apostrophes. Repetiton and mistaken continuity only added to the extroadinary presentation. The author was not even able to establish the name of Wardress Forster - (or should that have been Forest?) over the length of several pages. I have never before read a book so peppered with mistakes, and this made the reading annoying and detracted greatly from the fluency. Here's a lovely picture, surely designed to sidetrack the reader's mind : "she picked flowers and storks in the garden"!!

I ordered a number of Molly Cutpurse's books, and I have every hope that the story lines will be as good as A Year In Holloway -but I shall need some time to elapse before I can open the next. Oh dear.
