    • This book has been in my Kobo for ages. It was the type of book, in my opinion, that you left until the end, until you had read 'all the good stuff.' How wrong was I! I started this book as I had nothing else left to read and loved it. Loved it that much in fact that I have purchased the second and third in the series.The book focusses around Rose.e Jarrow lass, and her trials and tribulations with her family, her love interests and her place in society and life in poverty. I loved this book - t [...]



    • Janet MacLeod Trotter is an author that I had never considered reading until my daughter purchased this trilogy for Kindle. I was surprised as not the sort of thing that I would have expected to appeal to her, in fact she thoroughly enjoyed the saga and recommended that I read them. Intrigued especially when I learnt that the story was inspired by the life of Catherine Cookson, the trilogy seemed a good choice for a holiday read. A gripping and historical family saga that spans the late 19C and [...]


    • I love Catherine Cookson, so when I read that this was inspired by the life of her grandmother I just had to read it. And read it I did. I finished it in two daysading till 3am! The story is heartbreaking yet passionate and makes us thankful for the things we have today that would be considered luxuries and more back then. You feel their sorrow and heartbreak, admire their strength and courage, and remain thankful life has changed since then. Yet we find ourselves drawn to their plight, their ta [...]


    • From a Jarrow lad this is a very well written, evocative and representative rendition of life in Jarra at that time, will be following this on with the next two in the trilogy.well done lass you penned a reet canny read like!


    • I am a fanatic about family sagas. You will see this if you look at the genre of books I read. Janet Macleod Trotter is a wonderful writer and when you read this book you will have to read the others because the story is superb.


    • such a good book. Struggled to put it down. Read all three in the series, all fantastic. You can get completely lost in the story. Feel at a loss now I've finished them!! :-(


    • This was brilliant, telling the life of Catherine Cooksons family. Can't believe how people used to live and managed. Have to read the rest now


    • HarshThe lives women lived back in the late 1800's and beyond is beyond belief. Horrible. Rose's struggle with the "mores" of the age are remarkable. She won and lost. I can't wait to read the next book.


    • Story is well told and held my interest most of the time, but quite depressing at times, so I had to skip-read parts.


    • It was an ok read, but for me, it lacked something. The story and the picture of the time was interesting enough to keep me reading, but I thought the characters felt flat and lifeless, some to the point of being stereotypical and cardboardy. Throughout the book, the heroine never evoked any interest in me, I never truly felt her as a living breathing person. I wanted to like the heroine, feel with her, be able to admire her, but none of that ever came up for me. Another point that annoyed me a [...]


    • I really liked this book although the lead character had a very hard life particularly with her 2nd husband. Her in-laws from her first marriage didn't treat her well and all through the book I wanted something good to happen to her. This was a very well written book and the author drew the characters so well within the book that you could almost imagine them being real. I love to read period dramas and thoroughly enjoyed this one. I'm looking forward to reading the other 2 books in the trilogy, [...]


    • Enjoyed this story, am always pleased that I was not born into a situation of poor working class subsistance in Northern England mining regions during Victorian times - life was certainly to be endured not enjoyed. Am going to read the other two books in this trilogy, I am hoping that life will get better - always the optimist


    • Good book in the line of Catherine Cookson and I didn't realize it was about Catherine's grandmother so that made me like it even better. I also didn't realize it was a trilogy so it looks like I will be reading the next two. Life was hard back then! Men were not so nice either.




    • I loved it Did not know until I finished that it was about Catherine Cooksons Grandmother.Catherine cookson was always my favourite author



    • This book is the first in a trilogy based on the life of novelist Catherine Cooksons grandmother. The books go on to follow her mother and catherines own childhood.
