Review Welsh Books Council www.gwales.com
Mead's novel is inspiring reading; a classic tale, full of all the ingredients which make for the finest novels. My only criticism was that it ended too soon; I felt bereft! A sequel please.

Review Historical Novel Society
The author is a wonderful storyteller who uses authentic well-written language. A real page-turner. The story stays with you after the book is finished.

The Widow Makers: Strife 1860-1874

Jean Mead sweeps you along with her vivid descriptions of 19th century life. A compelling vivid account that leaves you finishing the last page with regret and hoping for more!
