Feel let downReviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 May 2017
I have read a lot of Maggie Hope books and this one is the worse . First of all I thought I was buying a newly released book , it's not , it was previously released in 2002 under another title and named author . The book has loads of grammar and spelling mistakes , and I kept having to turn back pages to see if I had turned too many pages and missed some dialogue , the story jumps about all over the place . Really angry I have wasted £8.99 on this book . Not sure if I will read any other of this authors books again as I feel cheated .

Fairly engaging storyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 April 2020
Have now read several books by this author. I found the storyline less believable, accepting the time span within in which it was set, women’s roles in society and very limited access to knowledge. I like the author’s continued use of setting her stories in the north east.

Growing up in the pit villages of bishop Auckland Katie lived with her grandparents but her gran threw her out when it seemed she was having a relationship with a married man . But it wasn't the way it happened kate was in shock after her granda and her sweetheart were killed in a pit tragedy . And Mathew took advantage of her fragile state of mind . It's a must read for fans of Maggie hope another 5 STARS for a great book .
A lovely mum!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 April 2018
This book was a slow read for me as it didn't 'grip' me. I did enjoy the book because of the reality of the mining thread and the true to how it was historical elements. The story took leaps at times but usually when the pace had slowed down. There were quite a number of grammatical and spelling errors hence dropping a star rating. On the whole not a bad read.
An enjoyable storyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 October 2019
I have read many Maggie Hope books but I have to say with this one that, although I enjoyed the story, I was distracted somewhat by the many typos and found a chunk seemed to be missing in one of the chapters.
