A romantic saga filled with tears, joy, and drama,
This review is from: Tilly Trotter: An Omnibus (Catherine Cookson Ominbuses) (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this complilation of all three of the Tilly Trotter novels. The characters are so meaty and well depicted - you really feel as if this were a true story and these these characters truly lived and breathed. From the very first chapter, I was hooked in and could not stop reading this massive tome until all three books were finished. I laughed, I cheered, and many times I cried and felt true pain for many of the characters in this book. The middle book, Tilly Trotter Weds, is real heartstring tugger - it is very emotional and powerful. I gave this a 4 stars only because the last book, Tilly Trotter Widowed, although still a very well written book, was a bit disappointing. The final book just didn't quite seem as believeable in many ways, even though it was still very enjoyable to read.
