I received this book as an Advanced Readers Copy I was a little confused at first because I wasn t sure what exactly was going on But it only took me a few pages to become engrossed in the story I grew up in the same time period so I could relate to a lot of what Ruth was going through But then Australia and South Wales and the surrounding areas are different from anything I know about There were so many ups and downs for the main character just like lifeI really enjoyed the book and was disappointed when it was over

Also posted on my blog Rinn ReadsI have to admit when I started out reading this book I wasn t particularly looking forward to it I d just finished a load of sci fi and fantasy and was very much in the mood for some and the blurb of this made me think it was going to be very depressingWhilst Ruth has a hard life sometimes her misfortune just seems a little over the top the book is not necessarily a depressing read I actually really enjoyed it the writing style was good and the story well developed with some dark twists mixed in There was perhaps a little too much foreshadowing in some areas which made it far too easy to guess what was going to happen and the blurb gave away too much of the plot in my opinion but apart from that it was a very good read Ruth is a strong character who could have easily been beaten down by the hardships she faces through her life view spoilerand I m glad that she eventually gets a happy ending hide spoiler
