This was a fairly standard Katie Flynn novel. Easy to read and non taxing. Enjoyable but slightly more predictable than her normal books I thought. I did find that there were a few more characters than usual and found all the different girls a bit confusing. I found Mary's final romance totally lacklustre. Amy's romance was very predictable also. I did like that K F tried to tackle themes such as the suffragette movement and rioting etc. Overall another nice Katie Flynn novel but not one of her ...more

I enjoyed reading this book but I must say not as much as some other books by Katie Flynn. I only gave it 3 stars as I found it to be very predictable and at times I felt frustrated with the main character in the book, Amy. I felt that not a lot actually happened in this book, it was more about relationships and didn't go into much detail about the history of the time it was set which I usually enjoy. All the characters in this book - and there are many all seem to get their happy ever after.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Katie Flynn has the ability to make the reader feel as if they are living the story in the era in which it is set. In-depth information is imparted in such a way that the facts seep into conscious awareness, adding to and rather than, spoiling the flow of the tale. I recommend the book to all who enjoy a good story, a true romance, a saga well told.

It was simple. It was nothing special. It was a normal story about a normal girl.
I read it like 20 times.
Her struggles, her want for independence, the love for her family, the love for paddy no matter how much she tried to hide it. It was simplllly sweet and a great book :)

Katie Flynn was born in Norwich and attended Norwich High School, where she was extremely happy and extremely undistinguished. Published at the tender age of eight, in Enid Blyton's Sunny Stories, she joined a Writers’ Circle as an adult, publishing short stories, articles, etc; only turning to novels in 1971 because the postal strike cut off her main source of income!
At first she wrote under seve
