I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of the next instalment in The Colliery Rows Saga, Rose’s Ever After.

I read book one (Rose’s Choice) of The Colliery Rows saga back in July 2020. The Colliery Rows is a family saga set around a small coal mining village in Northumberland. I was drawn to the novel as I too was born in a coal mining village and I am also a pitman’s daughter so I was intrigued to read and learn about the social impact of coal mining families during and after WWII.

Rose’s Ever After returns to the North East of England, to 1955, with Rose a young mum now and happily married to her childhood sweetheart, Danny. Rose loves being a mum but misses working with her first love, animals. When an opportunity arises to help out at a local farm that cares for elderly pit horses Rose jumps at the chance to use the skills she’s learned in the past. In the 1950’s it was still frowned upon for mothers to work but Rose is hoping to prove that she will be a better mum to young Lily if she can use her time wisely doing something she loves.

However, Rose was to face opposition from many corners and her life was set to receive a terrible blow.

We follow Rose’s journey through life facing heartbreak, hardship, shattered dreams but along the way a seed of hope of a new worthwhile challenges gives Rose a new purpose in life.

Rose is one of those characters in life that has had to endure a rollercoaster of turmoil and emotions. She is also a bright, young woman that is hardworking and loyal to her family. My heart was repeatedly torn with the onslaught of life’s hurdles that the author had thrown Rose’s way and I kept thinking and pleading to the author no more. Rose dealt with each blow in her own quiet, dignified way and gained an inner strength.

Once again Rose and the rest of the Kelly family captured my heart and I was championing for better days to come Rose’s way. I enjoyed learning about life in rural northern England in the 1950’s and 1960’s and the author incorporated poignant historical events brining the story to life even more.

A story of love and life’s struggles with a wonderful heart-warming aspirational ethos within.
