Amazon UK Reader'This is a really good story, I thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn't put it down. Lots of interesting details and twists and turns keep you guessing until the end. I also hope this is the start of a series as I want to see where the story goes. Thoroughly recommend this book'Historical Novel Society Review'Set in the Yorkshire Dales at the end of the nineteenth century, Tizzie is not only the dark and gritty tale of a woman whose dreams were cruelly crushed by her brother and his wife. It is also a vibrant description of life in the 1880s, period detail inserted with impressive skill in a narrative that flowers into fantastic descriptions of the Dale while never losing pace and a sense of impending doom. This is a harrowing and addictive reading experience in which hope flickers feebly in the dark. But it does flicker, and it is quite impossible to remain unaffected by Tizzie's determination to ensure her niece will have what she was denied - a life.'The Review blogReview by Louise E. Rule'In conclusion, I would have to say that Lindsay's unique style of prose has the subtlety of being able to manipulate the reader into the belief that they themselves could actually help Tizzie and Agnes. Whether it is the continued use of the Yorkshire dialect, or whether it is the undeniable investment the reader gives to the characters, I am not sure. What I would say is this: whichever it is, or maybe it's both, Lindsay succeeds in such a way that on finishing the book I was surprised to find that I was, in fact, still in the twenty-first century, and not back in the nineteenth century, so wrapped up was I in the story.
