TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 10 August 2011
This is a sad book which details in depth the facts surrounding the death of Beth's surviving twin daughters who she drowned. Beth already had 3 sons, her only daughter had died the year before and this terrible event appeared to come out of the blue.

This book is a good read, there is a lot of social history within the story including that of lace workers, horse traders, the effects of World War I as well as the fate of those mothers who killed their babies.

Sian Busby is Beth's Great Grandaughter and much of the story has been meticulously researched since although some of the stories had been handed down the generations, Sian's Grandfather refused to talk about Beth the shame and guilt still imprinted upon the family. An interesting but very sad story.
