Helpful Hints


Life is hard for Meg Turner. She lives on a lonely farm in the bleak but beautiful mountains of the English Lake District with a bully of a father who wants to keep her stuck at home. But Meg wants more than the kitchen sink, and turns for love to her best friend Kath, and to Lanky Lawson, who’s more of a father figure than her own father will ever be. But World War Two approaches and Meg soon discovers that the only thing she can really count on is her passion for the land she loves. Until one day a stranger arrives in the dale and her world changes for ever.

‘paints a vivid picture of life on the fells during the war. Enhanced by fine historical detail and strong characterisation it is an endearing story...’Westmorland Gazette on Luckpenny Land

I found this novel started out much like an insignifcant love story but with the arrival of Effie, the war refugee child, my interest picked up and I enjoyed the latter part of the book much more. I did find, however, that the story seemed to come to a rather abrupt end - obviously to lead up to subsequent novels. I do not like endings that leave you hanging... So for me, although it held my interest, the book was just OK.
