I enjoyed this novel, all the more so because I grew up in Leeds and lived on Marsh Lane for a while, so my connection with the area is quite intimate. It gave me an odd feeling to read about places I know so well and apparently don't know that well at all. I'd often wondered where the market was held before Kirkgate market was built and now I know! It's also intriguing to think of Chapeltown as barely part of Leeds at all and places like Moortown and Alwoodley definitely beyond its boundaries.

Aside from that, Richard Nottingham and his family are endearing and his friends and associates are an interesting bunch; some of them have bags of character potential. I've read the second book and am half-way through the third, so shan't say more about that. However, one of the things that makes this series compelling is that change is no more an optional extra now than it was then.
