I really loved this story.
Tilly True was a very determined young woman of her time. She certainly met some characters in her young life – especially Barney Palgrave. Traveling to India to what she thought would be paradise with her Barney. Life dealt her a harsh reality check – but through it all her saviour Clem was there.
The Author Dilly Court. Another brilliant story full of great characters – her description of people and places makes you feel like you are there. I loved it.
