Summary

1899. Josie has never questioned her life in a mining village on the South Yorkshire coalfield. But everything changes when she meets Tommy from the neighbouring village. Tommy has been destined for a life underground since the moment he was born. But he has far bigger dreams.

Josie and Tommy become fast friends, united by their desire for something better and by their fascination with the local gentry who have their keeping. Wealthy and glamorous, the Sedgewicks of Silvermoor inhabit a world that is utterly forbidden to Tommy and Josie. Yet as the new century dawns, and the pair become entangled with the grand family, they discover a long hidden secret and learn that nothing is impossible.

Great audiobook

I think this is one of the best audio books I have listened to by Tracy Rees. Possibly because of the excellent narration. Both narrators had accents which suited the story, and they really brought it to life.

Excellent story and naarration

I loved this story. The characters were totally believable and I cared about what happened to them.
I have read most of Tracy Rees' books and have enjoyed them all but I think this my favourite so far.
The narration was wonderful, there is nothing worse than listening to a book when the accents are poor, these two narrators were spot on.
I throughly recommend it.
