The Fairmile #2
This is the follow up to Tidelands.
The year is 1670. Midsummer Eve. On the poor side of London’s wharf area two women work hard to survive. They have both been treated horribly by the men in their lives and they must make their own way in the world.
I really think you should read the first book before this one. I was in the dark most of the time.
London at this time was no place for a woman. Men ran the world and treated women as less than human.
When an old lover shows up no one is happy to see him. There is some backstory there I never got.
Next a brash woman from Italy who claims she has the older woman’s sons child and the son has died.
I have to say I wanted to like this, but it was so depressing and dark. I thought the grandmother and the granddaughter were the only decent characters.
We will give the next one a try however.
