  • An Excellent Debut!

    I'm quite astonished this is a debut novel; it has all the signs of coming from a far more  experienced author. Ginnie Jones is born into poverty; when her father loses his job things get much worse and she, along with her parents, enter the workhouse. Despite Ginnie's fears, she does make friends there, but when fate steps in to rob her of their precious friendships, Ginnie has to depend on herself to survive. When she leaves the workhouse, life is still a struggle . . . This is an excellent read, telling Ginnie's story before, during and after her time in the workhouse. This is the first book I've come across with details of the potteries, and I found the details of the work there to be quite fascinating. Including information of the Great War, the workhouse system, the daily fight against poverty and touching on the suffragette's battle for women's votes, there is so much going on that I just flew through it! The characters came alive on the page, and it's a fully rounded story; even better, the author is working on the second novel and I look forward to that! A fabulous read which I'm very happy to give 4.5*.

    Thanks for your feedback!
