More than a read - a wonderful experience

This novel is beautifully written, and enthralling.

The research undertaken by the author into the jewellery business at the time of the turn of the nineteenth to the twentieth century gives a depth to the storyline

The pace of the events have you not wanting to put the book down as you need to know the outcome of each.

A book that I found to have every element needed - a thoroughly good and engrossing read, which I highly recommend to lovers of historical

Another great book by this author , loved getting to know the characters and although the book went back to what had happened then back to the present time in the book it doesn't distract you, would really recommend it .

As usual, Annie Murray's prose sank into my mind like rain into parched turf. It takes great skill to produce something so easily read and which makes you turn 'just one more page'. I hadn't read fiction for a while - too busy with other matters. I've missed this feeling!

The plot did leave resolution quite late; I was beginning to wonder if it would be a case of 'continued in next book' - happily not. This story was more gripping near the end than I'd expected, and I fairly raced through the se

I chose this book because of a family connection with the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, but I knew that it would be a well-written saga regardless of the setting. Annie Murray's books achieve a real sense of place - and of time, in this case the turn of the century when Birmingham was still very much the 'workshop of the world' but was also, like any big city of that era, a place of extreme poverty and deprivation. The characters were engaging, and the presence of two heroines rather than one ...more

I really enjoyed this book. You can’t help but empathise with the characters of Margaret and Annie. A great story that you can’t put down. Lovely that it’s set so close to home and mentions local places Worcester and Alcester.

Annie does not disappoint. She had me captured with this story. A real virtual page turner. Two sisters,a rigid father, a bad man, a deceased mother,a destitute family,a loving aunt and uncle and in the end a good ending.

This book rates more than five stars. I loved it from the first page to the last. Even learning new things to make. The girls are delightful and the story takes you in and has you sitting on the edge of your chair. A must read.
Thank you Annie Murray xx

Normally I love Annie's books but I struggled to get into this for some reason. I did enjoy the 2nd half of the book though

Lovely book and enjoyed the setting in Birmingham. My only concern was an English author using American spellings!
