The magic of Cornwall.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 October 2017
This is a delightful book, full of intrigue, that tells the story of a young Cornish girl who takes on an amazing challenge and faces many trials and emotions, along the way. Tracy Rees has captured the magic and mystery of Cornwall that makes you long to be there. I loved the heroine of the story and the way her character developed through the pages of this story. A book well worth reading and I will certainly be reading more of Tracy's books and feel sad to say goodbye to this particular book! Those who love reading, as I do, will understand what I mean.

Graceful and engagingReviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 September 2017
Having read and loved "Amy Snow", I decided to try another Tracy Rees and was not disappointed. I read one review which said it was dull because "the heroine did nothing". How wrong!!! Against the detailed setting of Victorian society, Florence achieved so, so much. As a woman alone - even when surrounded by family - she follows her heart and learns so much about life and her place in it. I loved the contrast between rural and city life in Victorian times....but most of all, I loved Florrie.

A shame that I have finished it :-(Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 April 2018
Another triumph from Tracy Rees. Altogether unputdownable, gripping, compelling and well edited - only one huge blooper:- 'He was my father's mother' . Interesting concept though. This was one of the few books that I didn't lose interest in halfway through although the Grace family did need a jolly good talking to! All of the characters were well rounded, like or loathe them and there was a god mix of types. Another book that you could give to your Granny or maiden aunt because the author is intelligent enough not to need to fill the book with bad language. Highly recommended

REAL LIFEReviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 June 2020
A well written book, but sadly far to dull as more fact than fiction - showed how life often is full of disappointments & hardships etc - the same storyline but with a lot more fictional excitement would have been far more fun - more like a mini biography of a poor cornish girl a couple of centuries ago - history tells us life was far from easy - for me personally this never really went anywhere.
Enjoyable escapismReviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 May 2017
The premise of this coming of age novel was interesting but it fizzled out and nothing much happens in the last quarter of the book. However it is well written (editors should have picked up confusion of travesty with tragedy though!) and evokes the moorland landscape well. There's some interesting historical detail but the characters' behaviour didn't seem consistent with the 1850s - particularly the mixing between classes. I far preferred Amy Snow with its central mystery to draw you on.
