"I Felt Transported to That Time and Place."

Posted on 24th April, 2020

Welcome to the scond day of The Poor Relation's book blog tour.


Today's first review is by the Portugese book blogger Jessica Almie.


She says:

"The characters were brilliantly written . . . There were some characters I absolutely loved from the very beginning, including Mary, of course . . . Then there were those that made me so mad . . . I found myself not being able to put it down . . .

"I had some suspicions about certain things, but Susanna Bavin brilliantly surprised me . . . especially in the finally chapters. I absolutely loved it. . . This book talks about family, society during the 1900s and all the differences that existed, not only between men and women, but also between classes. It is a thought-provoking novel and I felt trasported to that time and place."

Today's second review comes from Galina Varese whose book blog is called Chez Maximka. Galina says:


"The books gives a fascinating insight into the lives of women at the beginning of the 20th Century. . . Mary's personality is developing from an obliging, obedient daughter to a gutsy heroine who's fiercely intelligent and capable to fight not just her parents, but society's expectations. Her strength is born out of a devastating turn of personal circumstances.
Her bid for independence is based on her non-stagnant way of thinking and her determination to strike out on her own."
