Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

In the first month of her hurry and flurry Mrs. Arkwright was a happy woman. She would see her mother again and her sisters. It was now four years since she had left them on the quay at Southampton, while all their hearts were broken at the parting. She was a young bride then, going forth with her new lord to meet the stern world.

Rita Colher

I thought it was a great story with plenty of dramatism; the reader is cought by the story's plotter right at the beginning. However, I think that the story ends abruptedly. It deserved a development; the book ends and we think: "and now what?". But in general it is really captivating.
