You are always guaranteed an excellent read when you pick up one of Mary Wood`s books. I have read all Mary`s books and have never been disappointed. Judge Me Not is the kind of story you can cuddle up on a sofa with and be sure of yet another absorbing read. The story flows beautifully with the characters Mary has created, plus Mary has the exceptional ability to make the reader feel as though they are witnessing the events on each page - a mark of an excellent author, which in my opinion Mary is. If you like historical novels I`m sure once you have read one of Mary`s wonderful books, you will become an avid follower of this lovely lady - her love of writing clearly shows in her novels. I`m eagerly waiting for the next book in this trilogy and know I will be hooked once again from the first page. Mo Ainley xx

when ruths mammy dies as a result of an accident involving a coach as they trudge the countryside looking for work they are blamed. there is another death and ruth and her sibling are arrested. ruth is put in jail, i wont say what happens to her brother or sister.ruth has an affliction, a club foot, that makes the village believe she is a witch.
when she is in prison, she is treated terribly,as is her sister. ruth escapes.
she gets in with josh, a lovely man who lives with his Ma. they take her into there home, josh falls in love with her, but Ruth has feelings for the new earl of harrogate, although they have only met briefly, as rose and her sibling were blamed for the death of the earls brother. it would be an impossible love match, but he also cant get ruth out of his mind.
ruth and josh live happily as pretend husband and wife, they cant get married as she is still hiding in his farm. josh feels sorry for a young boy, who has to keep his family, they are starving. he gives him a job, ruth recognises him, and he her. spitefully he tells the village, who come to the farm as a baying gang. they try to get to her, someone dies in the fight (wont say who)they tie her to the stake in the middle of the bonfire, will she die, will someone save her.??? i wont say any more as i am scared i will put a spoiler in.
i will say i adored JUDGE ME NOT. really sad when it ended. there is a follow on in the making. i cant wait for it to come out.
i love all mary wood books, the breckton trilogy was fantastic as was the spin off, time passes time. her books just get better and better.if i could give ten stars for judge me not, i would. i would compare mary wood with anna jacobs, jo cox, freda lightfoot, all greats, and mary is up there with them. well done Mary, keep writing, i need to read the second book. i love the title too. its what drew me to the book,please forgive my grammar in my writing, readers, but i do speak from my heart. read the book, you will love it, it has romance, hate, love, fear, i would recommend it to all readers, men and women, young and old.x

What can I say that hasn't already been said about this book. It is full of drama and excitement which takes the reader on a journey through the world of a handicapped young woman. You feel her pain, misery and fear but her stregnth to overcome is greater than the negatives.

Losing her mother when her siblings were so young put her in the position of looking after them, but even this was taken from her. The story takes you from one nightmare to another through different members of her family but Mary Wood is brilliant at producing a great story and I'm giving nothing else away as I don't want to spoil it for others. Looking forward to any planned sequel that might be buzzing around Mary's head.

Highly recommended.

Having read all of Mary's previous books I knew I was in for a treat with Judge Me Not. Like her other books I was drawn into the story from the start and the characters were so real to me. Every chapter has twists and turns making it impossible to predict what will happen next. Mary you have excelled yourself once again to the delight of your readers. I'd urge anyone who likes historical sagas to read your books - I'm sure they won't be disappointed. I eagerly await your next book

This is the 6th book by the wonderful Mary Wood. Like the others absolutely brilliant, could not put it down. Come on Mary write a sequel as it was a fantastic tale had everything. Waiting for another Mary Wood book loved every one of Them. Would recommend any of her books. Read the Breckton trilogy then Time passes Time (Theresa's story) as it follows on. What a talented lady

Some parts of this book were so heart wrenching it was hard to read them but you knew they were very true to the times. To be guilty of a hanging offence just because you happened to be walking along a road at the wrong time seems so extreme now. Mary wood deals with people's attitudes to disability and class in such a painfully truthful way and you realise that being poor and beautiful was no great advantage. I can't wait to read the next part of this saga.

This is the first time I've read one of Mary Wood books, I enjoyed the story line which involved the hard times of poor people, it's hard to believe that this sort of treatment to the poor existed. I only give 5 stars to books I can't put down once I have started to read it, this book didn't quite reach 5 stars.
