This was one that was hard to put down. But in the end, it falls short of amazingness. It was the flirtation with it that kept me turning the pages; the waiting for it to happen.

Blair's Nellie isn't a saint, and thank you again for that! She's not above prostituting herself, having an affair with her older, balding married boss--this while she herself is married to a half-paralysed man who she can't wait to institutionalize (he's a douche, and a freemason, and worst of all he has red hands). There's that wonderful (for the reader, that is) "and then..., and then..., and then,..." of bad stuff happening. Oh, how I love it when one misfortune follows another, that follows another, and so on. It's one form of being hit over the head with it that I can tolerate. Can, in fact, become giddy over.

Then there's Nellie's wedding day. Most romantic ever. Catching the hubby bonking your cousin in the janitor's closet, then being brutally raped on your honeymoon. Ah, love is.
This was the first EMMA BLAIR book I'd read, I couldn't put it down. I have read 6 more of her novels since this one.
She writes in the style of Catherine Cookson with more gutsy details.

At first you'll laugh being out with Nellie Thompson and her friend Babs at Saturday night dances.
Nellie falls for Frank, but he's a Catholic. Her father is furious; they want her to marry Jim.
After Frank is forced to leave town Nellie relents and marries Jim, what a mistake she's made!
