    What can I say? A brilliant story, Dilly Court at her best. I loved it! The year is 1865 Sally Suggs lives in London with her father who is a Rag and Bone Man. Sally tries to keep the business going when her father suffers ill health, but things don't go her way. Sally owns a horse that is worth a lot of money, a lasting memory of her mother, she can't bear to be parted from Flower, but as time goes on and she struggles to buy food and pay the rent it looks as though she may be forced to sell her What can I say?

    What a beautiful story! Sally is a wonderful character, strong and sure and willing to do whatever she must to keep her family safe and fed. The setting was very vivid, and the portrayal of poverty in Sally's area was very emotional, and at times hard to read, especially considering the book is set at Christmas. But the way everyone stands together and helps each other was so heartwarming, especially when you consider everything that is going on in the world nowadays - it's inspiring to see othe What a beautiful story!

But the way everyone stands together and helps each other was so heartwarming, especially when you consider everything that is going on in the world nowadays - it's inspiring to see others love and care for each other so fiercely. This is exactly what you expect from a Dilly Court book - loveable characters, a bit of drama, a heartfelt romance, and a happy ending. What more could you want?

    Dilly Court is an author who I love to read. This is a great story but i did feel as if it was lacking on some of the details that Dilly Court is so good at. The story is a great concept with Sally trying to look after her father and also her friend and three boys that need a home, but the storyline with Feather did feel to become repetitive an also i was left with questions at the end of the book, such as did Sally pay back the money did Gideon pay back Sally? Did Vassey and Collins get charged Dilly Court is an author who I love to read. This is a great story but i did feel as if it was lacking on some of the details that Dilly Court is so good at.

Did Vassey and Collins get charged with the robbery of the horse and quite a few more. So in all a great story it just lacked some of the finer details towards the end.

    A wonderful read. I've never read anything by Dilly Court before so this was a pleasant surprise. Sally is such an amazing character. The way she works hard, looks after those she loves and takes in the Cotton boys, not forgetting her love and devotion for her horse Flower, just made my head soar throughout the book. There was so much happening throughout the book, it kept a great place and you weren't left wanting more. I'll definitely be reading more by Dilly Court in the future.

    Sally is finding life really tough when her dad who works as a rag and bone man starts to struggle, and she finds herself trying to support them both. She fears losing a lot of trade to their rival. When disaster strikes, help comes from unexpected quarters. You feel the struggles of the day, the lovely strong relationships, and her love for her horses. I love Dilly Court books and this one was a real treat.

    Sally Sally worked with her father on the rag and bone cart very hard work but she never complained but her dad was poorly and Sally was finding it hard plus she helped anyone she could like 3 young boys she looked out for. A really great book with lots of twists and turns well worth 5 stars.

    Yet another great book from Dilly Court, absolutely loved this book, think this is the quickest I've ever read one of her books, just could not put it down. Loved the way Sally had two men falling in love with her and I really didn't know who I wanted her to end up with but was very pleased with the outcome in the end. Really deserved more than the 5☆ I could give it.

    An excellent story, engaging and highly entertaining. A vivid and well researched historical background, well developed characters and a tightly knitted plot. The author is a talented storyteller and the story kept me hooked. I learned something new and rooted for the characters. It's strongly recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine

    I truly loved this book, as always with a Dilly Court book you know you are going to be immersed in a marvelous storyline and this was no exception. Set in 1865 in London and the surrounding countryside this will sure be a great hit with saga lovers.

    Dilly Court writes in pictures, it is so easy to imagine the people and their surroundings that you feel as though you are actually there. Another great story with relatable characters and an interesting storyline. A thoroughly enjoyable read!

    Another good read from Dilly Court. Title is misleading as nothing really related to Christmas.

    Although I love Dilly Court books, I didn’t enjoy this one as much as other titles. Slow to start but a good storyline.
