    1 thought on “Emily

    1. i really loved this book!ok, so the ending may have tied up too nicely for some more cynical people but the whole book kept me intrigued from the very start, following the story of this poor girl who gets sent away from home at five,has to start work as a servant at fourteen and from then on has a horribly difficult life!the reason this book worked for me was that the author didnt romanticise the past in the way that some do,she wasnt afraid to tell of the grit and the class differences of that [...]

    2. Very enjoyable book, sometimes a bit too much on the fairy-tale-style with no magic but too many happy coincidences. Emily is a nice heroine, a servant girl who is sent away from home when she was barely 5 and that grows up in a fine young girl with a huge heart and a very sweet nature.I liked how all the horrible things happened to her (rape, stillbirth, false accuses, unjust imprisonment and exile) didn't really change her into a bitter person but she kept opening her heart to people around he [...]

    3. I enjoyed this book and would have given it 3 and a half stars if that was an option. It tells the story of a young English servant girl and her struggles in life. I like that the story portrayed a servant instead of the typical heiress. The only reason that I didn't give the book four stars was simply that it had much too much of a fairy tale ending. I like happy endings but this ending overshot happy for me.

    4. I read this after "going home" and thought something seemed familiar I should have read this one first. It was fasinating the account on the ship going to Australia and how life was then. I would recommend this book I read it in 2 days as it was so interesting.

    5. I loved this book it's the second time I've read it and I love it just as much. It's about a young girl who goes through her childhood and womanhood poor and transported for a crime she didn't commit only to find love and family on the way
