  • Absolutely wonderful

    What's wrong with wanting more from life? What's wrong with questioning is this my lot in society? What's wrong with not wanting to follow in the Family's Legacy? Why cant there be more? For young Tommy and Josie these are the fundamental questions you don't ask- or think about. You have to know your rightful earned place in the world. For Tommy its deep underground as a miner. For Josie, it's to be a wife and a mother to a miner. So begins this aching story of longing for something more, set in Rural England, 1897 to 1905. Tracy Rees recreates,with historical accuracy, the lives these poor mining families led. Filled with harsh moments, brutalities, and want, these characters don't leave you. On the flip side, we meet the wealthy landowners and mine operators. These families have problems and secrets of their own, only they live behind the gates of their great houses, finely dressed, sparing no expense in the industry of their households. These two worlds collide, creating dark consequences and sinister wants. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Thank you to NetGalley, Quercus Books and the author Ms. Tracy Rees for the opportunity to read this Advanced Readers Copy of "The House At Silvermoor". The opinions expressed in this review are mine alone.

  • Touching & Honest, Hint of Scandal & Mystery

    Tracy Rees is a new-to-me author and it took some time to adjust to her cadence. This book is undeniably interesting. It paints an imaginative look at the hopes and dreams of a young couple in Victorian England while simultaneously highlighting the despair of decrepit working conditions, especially in mining. It showcases the difference between the haves and have nots. It is not a quick moving narrative by any means, but it was intriguing. You truly get to know the characters and they feel like friends. Their history and development will have you cheering for the underdog more than once. Your heart may even be broken as your emotions are moved by the blights our friends encounter. Overall, I would recommend this title as a slow read to indulge in over a few days. It was gritty, sweet, and passionate, but avoided pretty decoys in the sense that it remained raw in its appeal without adding unnecessary bows and ribbons. It’s touching and honest with a hint of scandal and mystery. My thanks to Quercus Books for the opportunity to read and review this title via the NetGalley platform.

    Thanks for your feedback!
