an unbreakable bond Reviews
What can I say about this story, I read all the books, absolutely incredible writing. Mary Wood is one of my favourite authors. The way she describes the different scenes, situations and outcomes really tear at your heart. The two young girls go their separate ways and what befalls them is quite harrowing. I could not put this book down I wanted to know what happened and Mary Wood will have you thinking the same way. An absolute must read.
This wonderful story is so inspiring and makes me feel quite humble, because Mary has such writing talent. The story of these two friends had me riveted and I could not stop until I had read the whole book. If you are a Catherine Cookson fan you will adore this story.
These are just three of my amazing amazon reviews. All my reviews on Amazon are 5*By Lisa WB (UK) - See all my reviews This review is from: An Unbreakable Bond (Paperback) An Unbreakable Bond is a superb read and reminds me of a blend of A Woman of Substance by Barbara Bradford Taylor and Catherine Cookson books, the business skills from A Woman of Substance and the raw passsion from Catherine Cookson books, yet An Unbreakable Bond has so much depth and emotion, that it is a compelling read. The author herself, Mary Wood is a remarkable lady and the integrity, warmth and professionalism comes out in her writing. An Unbreakable Bond is about Megan and Hattie who both have to survive through trauma, and about the strength of relationship between them that helps them each battle their own wars. The book also pulls the reader in through the power and motivation of the girls, as each have the courage to fight back and attempt to start up a business. The way the characters are built is rich and you fall in love with some of them. Issy is a wonderful person.This book is entertaining, educating and a fascinating read. It is the kind of book that never has enough pages as you do not want it to finish. I hope that another book is on the way as I have plenty of room on my shelf for books like this. ******An Unbreakble Bond by Mary Wood, is a superb read. From the very first chapter it was truly gripping.I particularly like books written in this era, it was gritty, sad, heartbreaking, heartwarming, and through all this Mary Wood has blended the characters of Megan and Hattie superbly. Truly believable of the times. Val LuptonMary's style reminds me of Josephine Cox. I can't wait for the next book to see how the lives of Megan and Hattie continue.***** Without doubt,this is the best book I have read in a long time. I just haven't been able to put it down. It is gritty and in parts heartbreaking, but the theme of love and friendship runs throughout and Megan and Hattie's story is one I wouldn't have missed for the world. If you like Catherine Cookson you will love this novel. Mary Wood is not only a talented writer, but an imaginative story teller who makes you care deeply for her characters. I can't wait to read her next book. I recommend this without reservation. L Morley
et another heartbreaking story from a wonderful storyteller.I love stories set at the turn of the Century, and I can't imagine the suffering that went on. Megan and Hattie have an unbreakable bond when they are brought up together in an orphanage. The story follows both girls, Megan dreams of setting up her own sewing business, and at first she enjoys the freedom of a new life, and befriends Cissy, and they also become great friends.Poor Hattie seems to have been dealt the bad set of cards, and at first enjoying her new job, is raped, and is forced to start a new life on the streets.Megan falls for Cissy's bloke, and so ends up marrying someone who knocks her around, and therefore both Megan and Hattie can sympathise, with each other, and always have a special bond.Mary is a true storyteller, and her books always want you to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next, and they are never predictable. I can't wait for her next novel.
What a beautiful story and so well written with such passion. This book is quite different from my normal genre although it does have it all, romance, abuse and murder and what an awful period in time for women and the poor. I can highly recommend this amazing book and thank you Mary Wood. I am now going to read the next book in this trilogy immediately - Tomorrow Brings Sorrow
so full of history from beginning to end and ended with a great twist was so sad to find i was on the last chapter any family saga fans would truely enjoy this and i was very lucky to get a paperback copy well done mary wood
Just loved this book, a good read!
I thought this book started out GREAT, but then kind of fell apart as it progressed.i thought there wast too much stuff going on and the end was kind of thrown together.
