Publisher's Summary

At 12, Ruth Appleby stood by her mother's grave on a bleak Yorkshire moor. Life as the daughter of a Victorian millhand had never been easy, but now she was both mother and housekeeper to the little family left behind. As one tribulation after another beset her life, so a longing, a determination, grew - to venture out into a new world of independence and adventure.

    "And then??"

    Didn't like the way it was open ended as though the author was running out of ways to pull the story to conclusion. Too many loose ends.

    "Ruth Appleby (Unabridged)"

    This book was very good. I really liked how the booked moved along and was not boring, I did feel bad for her husband but it did make it all interesting. I wish there was a second book to tell you how things went later. but it is worth getting

    "A good Elvi Rhodes story."

    A gripping story with twists and turns but rather an abrupt ending. You want it to go on a bit longer, but still worth listening to.
