    This book is the first one I have read by Rosie Goodwin I read most of it and then somehow it got pushed further down the book list I have been reading I put this right today and I m pleased to say it was well worth the wait It is a great story and an interesting read with various twists and surprises throughout There are two main characters, both young girls but from very different backgrounds The author does an excellent job of contrasting the differences in these young women so well In spite of the huge differences in their backgrounds they become close friends The book shines a light on how single pregnant women were treated in those times I will certainly read of Rosie s books and indeed have another waiting there for me Recommended.

    Yet another fabulous tale from this talented author The story tackles a number of difficult issues many of which were not unusual in the period of time when this story was set but which would not be tolerated today Descriptions of the places in which the characters found themselves were brilliantly written making the reader feel part of the action Looking forward to the next book by Rosie Gordon.

    So glad times have chsnged regards single pregnant women.How tough folk were then on sailing ships for months at sea to get to Australia in those days Good story and could appreciate descriptions of cold wretchedness washing by hand etc as for my generation some of us still remrmber how life was up to the late 1950 s for some I like these stories though as at least for the main characters we know theres a happy end eventually so read on appreciating even that Im warm and not reading by candlelight as they would have been.

    The excellent story writing of Rosie Goodwin makes you feel like you are there , looking over on the events of the tale The story covers the lives of two young girls, Maria and Isabella , both from completely different backgrounds and the story of how the lives entwined The ending leaves you imagining how the out come will change their lives.
