  • Absolutely Loved this Historical Fiction Charmer!

    Loved, loved this beautiful and charming book and am pleased it is the beginning of a new series! So much to anticipate. Not only is the writing itself gorgeous with sublime descriptions but the story is simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming. From the first page I practically clung to it and read it in one sitting, fully captivated and ignored responsibilities and life for awhile. And that ending! In 1910s Liverpool, young Anna Cassidy horrifically loses her home and most of her family in a fire and is left with nothing. She and her beloved younger brother Sam are accustomed to living in poverty and dealing with a terrible bully, so the tragedy means layer after layer of unbearable awfulness. Sam is immediately taken by the Church under the guise of care and generosity and shipped off to Canada before Anna is even aware of it. Both of their lives are drastically torn apart. Sam is treated abominably in Canada but Anna is taken in and kindly doted on by Ruby Swift and Archie. We see their lives through their perspectives. What an astonishing book for any Historical Fiction fans...it's a must read and would be a shame to miss. Can't wait for the next! My sincere thank you to Boldwood Books and NetGalley for the privilege of reading this marvelous book! I enjoyed it very much.

  • A wonderful story

    Number 1 in the series is definitely number 1 in my "books". I await anxiously for the sequel. Born in Liverpool and now living in Canada this adventure checked many boxes in my experiences. Sheila has captured the essence of the working class in Liverpool, their passions and dreams. A page turning heartfelt story of ordinary people in the early 1900s. I will look forward to hearing of the completion of her next novel.

  • The Mersey Mistress

    An excellent story about the family and friends who supported each other throughout the tragedy and joy of life in Merseyside before WW1. Hoping there will be a sequel.
