I enjoyed this bittersweet story of the Victorian working class. The narrative captures the impact of powerlessness of working class women despite intelligence and motivation. The harshness and brutality of rural life as the feminine experience set against the natural beauty of the Sussex countryside.

This was the first novel I read by Bunny MItchell and was immediately caught up in her excellent story-telling. Living in Sussex, I found the historical detail fascinating so I looked forward to reading more from her.

Review by: jrrymllr on Aug. 03, 2013 :
A very well-written book with absolutely brilliant dialogue and characterization. After reading the first few pages I knew I had to finish it, which was easy to do since it's free though it shouldn't be. The author leisurely describes what seemed to me to be a prison ten miles square with two nice people incarcerated in a beautiful country setting with people who aren't nice at all. There were one or two spots where I thought the action was slightly forced, but probably that's just me quibbling. Most of what I read, or start to read, on smashwords is unpolished. This book glitters.

This book is great. Truly enjoyable. I kept hoping that Hannah and Seth would have a life together. A beautiful story. True love. I read it in one evening because I could not stop. Looking forward to more stories by this author.
