I really enjoy stories written in years gone by,I like the dynamics of how men and women were supposed to act and behave. Lally is a strong minded, free spirited and loving woman who at times acts impulsively. I was captured from the start and loved the loylty of the womens friendships with one another. A great love and devotion blossomed throughout between Lally and Harry. I look forward to reading more of Howards books.

I was surprised by this book: less romantic than I expected but much more interesting.

A romantic novel set in Yorkshire in the woolen industry when conditions for mill operatives were appalling and life was cheap. Not really my kind of reading but it showed me the importance of respecting the reader's intelligence, the value of dialect, and the merits of brevity!

Very readable historical fiction set in Yorkshire during the industrial revolution. It reminded me of Catherine Cookson's writing. However, points off for excessive use of exclamation marks.
