In days of horse and buggy, servant class when educated can mix with betters.

This is the third volume of the Tilly Trotter's tetralogy.

Tilly's saga continues, when she returns back home after her stay in Texas with her late husband Matthew. She brings back her son Willy and her adopted Mexican daughter Josefina.

Old loves and enmities are still coming up as part of Tilly's faith.

Page 82:
Last night she had lain for hour pondering on her life that could be said to be uneventful looked at from the outside, but which underneath the surface had been filled wit tragedy since s

The final novel in the Tilly Trotter trilogy had me on the edge of my seat. It opens with Tilly and her son, Willy and her adopted daughter returning to England where a bunch of rude, judgemental villagers await her. After arriving home and settling back into her late husband's estate, Tilly shows amazing bravery and brazenly faces the villagers down right after church one Sunday. Having been accused of being a witch in the previous novels, Tilly uses the villagers own superstitions against them ...more

im happy to finally finish the entire tilly trotter series. all that comes to mind when i think of this series is thank god my love life isnt as crazy as hers lol. This 3rd part of the tilly trotter is as eventful and dramatic as the first and second. i had lost interest around the second book, but it all came back after reading this one.

Well thank goodness I have finished the Tilly Trotter trilogy. Whilst I really loved the trilogy it was incredibly sad and not really entertaining. I saw only sadness for the majority of the time. A grim world that only could be in such an era.

Some parts of Catherine Cookson's writing style within this series drove me a little nuts but maybe it was more reflective of the period for which it was written.

I read all of Catherine Cookson's books some years ago and enjoyed them immensley. I recently re-read all of them and find that on a second look I found them all so very predictable, and was rather disappointed. However I'm sure that it is my tastes that have changed not the calibre of her story telling.

She finally gets her man.

More tragedy than one person should have, Tully Trotter finally finds the genuine happiness that has eluded her for years.
