This is the second story in the series that I have read. I love the characters and their stories. Peggy Reilly is a truly warm person who looks after everyone like a mother hen. Mary has a very sad story and you feel for her. The Author Ellie Dean is an excellent storyteller. I look forward to her next instalment. Brilliant!
