    This novel is set in a village in the UK in the middle of the 19th century 12 year old Abbie has just left school and is about to apply for a service job A picture is drawn of a fairly close lower middle class family with a discontented mother When their mother leaves home it s no surprise, despite being shocking for the era Abbie has to take charge of the household, and does it well The narrative skips several years, when a pleasant day out turns into a nightmare The rest of the book feels like a kind of soap it s full of violence, tragedy, betrayal, and the loss of and loved ones There are some pleasant interludes, then yet another terrible scene is introduced By the time I was about half way through I wanted to get to the end, to be finished with all the tragedies, piled higher and higher.Conversations are stilted, with exchanges that add nothing to the story or the characters concerned There s a lot of introspection too, but viewpoints switch even within a scene, making the reader feel uninvolved in any of the characters Moreover, Abbie becomes less and less likeable, and she s the main protagonist Rather than being depressed by all the awful things around her, she becomes obsessed, rude and unreasonable She s supposed to be intelligent, but can t even figure out what a recurring bad dream means The ending is, in a sense, hopeful but Abbie s emotional state isn t real, and didn t move me I should have been in tears at the horrors of the final chapters, but she felt wooden and unbelievable and , I wondered if the author had any insight at all into the ways a young mother s mind worked and, after finishing, discovered that the author is in fact male, writing under a pseudonym I don t wish to be sexist, but it does explain, perhaps, why the women in the book are so hard and two dimensional Not recommended.

    A bit long, and tear jerky dramatic, but still a nice read.
