The Girl With The Amber Comb by Linda Finlay

Full Circle

The Girl With The Amber Comb by Linda Finlay is an historical saga set in Somerset in 1834. It is a fascinating account surrounding a kind hearted, plucky young woman.

The reader is full of admiration for the heroine with a huge heart. Although her head is turned, we see the lengths she goes to, to survive. The poor were taken advantage of. Jobs were poorly paid with long hours. A little bit of kindness goes a long way.

On life’s journey, friendships are forged. Life is always better when we do it with friends.

The reader learns about the skilled art of weaving as a community pulls together. Resources and food are pooled.

I really enjoyed this account of a time of hardship but where people pulled together. There were those who sought to take advantage but the lasting impression is one of community and love.

I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
