    Strong Heroine!

    Brear paints a gritty, but vivid picture of Victorian Yorkshire which held my interest until the end with wonderfully detailed and authentic descriptions of the poorest parts of Yorkshire and the characters who inhabit them. They all seem very real and leap off the page. The protagonist is a young, well born woman, Aurora Pettigrew who is forced to abandon her wealthy family, and becomes determined to find her birth mother. Discovering her is quite a shock. Aurora finds she must develop new skills to survive in the slums. Strong and determined she is constantly tested in a sometimes violent world. I stayed up late finishing this novel. Brear's stories are so unpredictable I couldn't guess the ending. There's a tender love scene, a handsome hero and the minor characters too are exceedingly well drawn. Made me a bit teary at one point, but the ending is heart warming.

    Excellent Victorian Romance

    Another romantic tearjerker by Ms Brear, set in nineteenth century Yorkshire with an authentic atmosphere and lots of conflict. Aurora suffers two setbacks in quick succession, and rejected and heartbroken she leaves her family rather than disgrace their name Her formerly comfortable life takes a downward turn in all directions when she has to make a living in a poor area of town. She has more spirit than even she imagined and she not only survives long hours in menial jobs with demanding employers, but unwilling to bring disgrace to the man she loves, she stands by her principles and goes it alone As with all AnneMarie’s novels, the route to the end is uncertain – will she, won’t she – but it’s definitely worth the wait.
