  • Family does not have to be related

    This was a little bit different type of story, but I enjoyed it. Nellie, the owner of the "Crown Saloon" has a tendency to take in those unfortunates needing a job and a place to live. These different types of Characters come together and become a family that care for each other. This all takes place in a hard economic time in a historic period of England. The descriptions of the gas lamps along the streets and on the saloon is enchanting. The characters are wonderful and either likable or unlikable as villains. What a great job the author did with those characters. Three strong women characters appeared, Nellie, Nance and Dolly, proving that women, even then, were strong and resilient. I loved the character of Dolly especially. There were some strong mail characters such as Jack and the villain Ezra. The battle between Nellie and Ezra was a good battle. In the worst of times the best people emerge and stand strong and tall. This entertaining and delightful story will keep you turning pages and you will enjoy reading every page. I recommend this book. Thanks to Lindsey Hutchinson, Boldwood Books, and NetGalley for allowing me to read and review an advance copy of the book for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Memorable Characters

    Sometimes the strongest family bond is the one that is made out of kindness in a harsh world. The Children from Gin Barrel Lane by Lindsey Hutchinson is an unforgettable story of kindness, a family made, opportunities explored and hard work rewarded in life. Despite the title, the children, Jack and Dolly are only two of the memorable main characters in this heart lifting story. Others are just as unique and colorful. In harsh times, personal strength and determination comes through. Authentic and believable, to the point where not always do the bad guys get caught. That along with the fact that the group found a way to survive based on the direct ruin of others gave me pause. Life is certainly that unclear with lines blurring at times. Without a doubt, a page turner that holds your interest as well as giving you much to think on when you are finished. An ARC of the book was given to me by the publisher through Net Galley which I voluntarily chose to read and reviewed. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
