I must add, Thank you Nicholas Mathys for being you, as I will always remember Jack and his 'little voice' a laugh out loud moment! Now if you want to know what that is all about, you will have to read book 4, but of course 1-3 comes must come first. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I did.

    This is the last of the Howarth Saga books and like the first three it is intelligently written and very well researched; in short, an excellent entry into the historical fiction genre. The story line covers the often painful shift from agrarian to industrial England and does justice to the experiences of people who found themselves amongst the poor and disenfranchised. The book touches upon the Luddite and Chartist movements as well as the incredible surge in industry and invention.

I was interested to see that this book was rated and reviewed in 2020 as it's been around for quite some number of years; goes to show that good books don't fade away! Highly recommended.
