    Story

    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.
