    2. I won this book through a giveaway, of which I am extremely happy and grateful to the author.Wow, this book, where do I start Story in brief Rosehannon is a feisty young woman trapped by poverty, fallen social class, culture, society and family expectations Her dreams and ideas are modern, but in reality, there has always been social commentary through the ages about the role and chances of women, so I got over this quite well In trying to find answers regarding her father s death and the loss o [...]

    3. Truly enjoyable.This is not the sort of book I would normally pick off the shelf, and I expected for it to be a bit of a struggle However I was presently surprised and eaisly read it within a few days The era is well researched and therefore interesting and believable The characters are strong and well thought through Rose, the protagonist, is certainly a case of being her own worst enemy Parts of the story were a little predicatable, of course she was going to fall in love with the sailor she m [...]

    4. I was very lucky to win this book in a draw earlier in the year Very good, with a twist about a third of the way through I hope there is a sequel as I would like to see how the story develops Having grown up in Cornwall, I m trying to guess where the author based her fictional locations on but am not sure At first I thought it maybe Falmouth, but it could be Fowey

    5. Pengelly s Daughter has all the hallmarks of a rollicking good historical adventure, and if you like a feisty heroine who doesn t stand for any nonsense and a ruggedly handsome hero who has just a hint of a secret in his background, then I am sure that this story will appeal.Set against the sweeping majesty of the Cornish coast, Pengelly s Daughter is a family saga which gives than a nod towards the massively successful Poldark series by Winston Graham Does it have the same classic pull as Grah [...]

    6. From the cover of this novel I got a Catherine Cookson family saga vibe that I have to admit almost put me off But the blurb and the comparisons with Poldark had me sold For a debut novel this has all the makings of a great historical adventure I actually looked up the author expecting a back catalogue of similar novels so well established was her style, characterisation, and vivid descriptions of the sights and smells of Cornwall.Rose, true to form in this genre of novel, was a feisty and heads [...]

    7. I received this book to read and reviewIt is 1793 and Rosie s father has died some time ago She and her mother have been scrimping every penny to pay the rent and buy food Rosie does some book keeping and her mother takes in sewing But unbeknown to Rosie her mother is hiding a secret William Tregellas is a rich man very rich And he has been paying all the bills even for Rosie s father s funeral It was only meant to be a temporary thing until Rosie s mother could get back on her feet after her hu [...]

    8. The beginning of the novel see Rose Pengelly and her mother struggling to survive after her father has been cheated out of his shipbuilding business in late 18th century Cornwall She has received an offer of marriage from a local businessman, William Tregellas, but Rose refuses, believing that it is he who got her father imprisoned as a debtor and where he died In trying to prove her belief, she is aided by a mysterious young sailor, Jim, who has his own reasons for wanting revenge on Tregellas [...]

    9. I thoroughly ejoyed this well paced story with a fiesty heroine bucking the traditional role for women My daughter who is 11 also read it and enjoyed it too it would be well placed as a YA book as well as adults More from this author please

    10. Historical fiction set in Cornwall in the 1790 s with an independent minded young woman as heroine, daughter of a ship builder, who dreams of becoming a ship builder herself although she has been born into a man s world She falls in love with a fugitive sailor who is hiding a secret about his identity It s a rousing good story with a heroine you can root for and lots of wonderful detail that brings the story to life.

    11. Cornwall, 1793 is the setting of this historical fiction debut.It is geographically vivid, emotionally moving, dramatic in conflict.A feisty heroine and a ruggedly handsome sailor stoke the fires ofromantic possibility and then shift to impossibility.There is enough romantic alternation and striking events to keep the reader alert.However,Rose s question remains does he ever tell her the truth giveaway

    12. DNF p 156 of 327 epub version 50% I strongly dislike all the characters in this novel so far The hero is an ass, the heroine is incredibly wishy washy with her flipping between unbearably shrewish and stupidly suddenly in love with said mysterious ass who she just claimed a paragraph ago that she d never forgive in incomprehensible speeds, and all the side characters are either too pitiable or tiresome I just can t deal with this.

    13. I got totally swept away reading this book it has a strong plot, very evocative descriptions and wonderful characters I particularly liked how the author has captured what it must have been like to be a feisty woman with ideas and passion in the 1790s The romantic setting of Cornwall and interesting historical context made this a good read.

    14. A really enjoyable read set in Cornwall in 1793 Will suit Poldark fans I would thoroughly recommend this book.
