Sophie Deene is her father's daughter—proud, fiercely independent...and bound by convention. She might hire a handsome, insolent Cornishman to work in the mine, but she wouldn't fall in love with him. Impossible, unthinka...more

This book was kind of traumatizing to read. The characters would be blissfully happy, then extremely miserable, then happy, the miserable again, over and over. And so it was very emotional, but by the end I was sort of wondering if the author really had to put them through so much agony, and really quite tired of the constant mood swings.

Here is a graph:


(And there was more, and more gradation, too, but those are the main points of happiness and misery. Also, my time axis is in no way to scale fo...more

This turned out to be my least favorite of the three Wyckerley novels, lacking the angst of To Have and To Hold and the sweetness of To Love and to Cherish. The class issues between the hero and heroine never really got resolved, just ignored, and the resolution didn't quite come together for me.

Let me start by saying that I am not a fan of books in the romance genre. In fact, I have no idea why this series ended up on my "to read" list. I tried the other two books in this trilogy some time ago and couldn't get through either one. I decided to start this one, but was pretty sure that I wouldn't finish it.

But finish it I did. And, while it certainly won't go down as one of the best things I've ever read, it was good enough to keep me reading.

Recommended to Elisabeth by: Wyckerley Trilogy, I rarely resist a series
Very good. To Have and to Hold is a favourite book of mine and this is the last of the Wyckerley Trilogy - with the following swoon worthy information about Rachel and Sebastian "He seemed always to be touching his wife, her hand or her elbow, the small of her back, and Sophie found being with them exciting and unsettling because of the physical energy that crackled between them" - sigh.

That said, this book was really good and I might go so far to say that I found it better than Christy and Anne...more

Having spent three novels in the quaint village of Wyckerly, I am a bit sad to be done with the trilogy. Such a charming group of people, were those background characters. Secretly, I was a little disappointed that snooty Honoria never had her moment of comeuppance. I've decided that she must have fallen for a dirt-poor merchant, and thus realized that she had been unbearable previously and so spent the rest of her life humbled and madly in love with her poor schlub. ;)

But as to the real story,...more

Meninas, eu estou apaixonada pela Patricia Gaffney. Acho que é uma das poucas que consegue sintetizar em um livro várias facetas da complicada personalidade humana de forma real. Eu sei que estou me repetindo porque já disse isso em minha resenha de To Have and To Hold, mas essa é a verdade. Lendo as histórias dela, você consegue ver claramente várias coisas que, se acontecesse com você, provavelmente você agiria da mesma forma que as personagens do livro. E isso é ótimo, porque...more
Judi Lacanlale
Very intelligent romance novel full of wisp of feelings of first love and the idealized version of the version of the one we suppose to love and when that betrayal is exposed, ones being crumbles and the sense of lost of innocence embitters and makes one second-guess if the love you felt was real at all. This is the story of Sophie Dean, a beautiful owner of a mine and a 'radicalist' Connor who is driven to expose miner safety & infractions and make a difference for his ill brother and all o...more

Each book that I read of Patricia Gaffney, is different. Each is complex and draws me in. She is a good writer.
Finn
great story. just one warning: its a heck of a tear jerker
Tabs
The radical reformist and the lady mine owner... meet in front of the town church, butt heads repeatedly, and eventually fall in love.

Patricia Gaffney's an amazing writer so it's hard to criticize... but the romance in this one didn't really work for me. Both leads were way too obstinate and immovable and I really didn't get invested in their relationship at all. The writing was great, the romance not so much.

I enjoyed this book although it was different from other stories I have read.
Romina
Certainly not up to par with To Have and To Hold, but a pleasant read, even though the ending, true to the book's title, was quite corny.
Michael
Not as good as other two books in the Wyckerley Trilogy, this one was still pretty good. I liked it, but didn't love it
Natalya
Not as good as the first two, perhaps because I didn't care enough for Connor.
