I had this recommended to me. It was an enjoyable book but quite simplistic. I read it quickly and have gone on to read the others in the trilogy.

I'd consider this book to be so-so. It got pretty good reviews and a friend told me to read it, but it's not my bag at all. I enjoy some romance, but it has to just be a part of a bigger story. I suppose you could say the drama between the main character and her evil aunt and uncle is something else but it wasn't strong enough to keep me going. I did finish it but I found myself reading it as quickly as possible so I could move on to something else. I won't bother reading the rest of the trilogy ...more

Enjoyed this first book about the life of Emma Grady. It starts with her as a young girl left in the care of her Aunt and her husband when her Dad dies. Emma try's to make the best of her life but she's dealt some tough blows. It ends with her being transported to Australia. I'm looking forward to reading more of her adventures in book two.

Too predicatable, too cliched and not descriptive enough of the times. I was also dissapointed that Australia was saved for the second volume, because I'm not going to read that

It was all very predictable, but a comfy read after a day of heavy brain activity. The characters were formulaic, but that's what I was after when I read this one.

good story though im told its part of a series but dont read if you want hope in life - one of the most depressing reads ever but very well written.
