History and romance together
If you believe in everlasting young love then this is the book for you.
It was a challenge for me to accept that a girl of 16 and a boy of 18, coming from opposing classes, would meet, almost instantly fall in love, overcome all the obstacles they faced during their relationship and finally manage a HEA. Even teenage lovers Romeo and Juliet were fated.
Historically accurate, the author describes the plight of the working class in their daily struggle to survive on low pay, atrocious housing, ill health and the constant threat of unemployment. Life in the Potteries in early Edwardian England was short lived.
If a reader is able to accept Daniel and Maddie's improbable relationship they will enjoy this historic romance.
