    A good, pleasant, easy read.I won this book in a first reads giveaway. I hadn't read any of Kitty Neale's books before. The book started off really well, very easy to get into and the pace kept going and held your attention. Kitty Neale certainly has a gift for storytelling and there were plenty of happenings in the book to keep you interested. It was quite a good story but I felt it moved along too quickly. I don't like a lot of unnecessary detail or waffle but I felt this was skimming along a [...]

    This book was ok but I wasn't captured by it. It was a bit disappointing, I thought the story could have gone in a different direction and made it a better read.

    Won from a Giveaway I have to be honest I hate the cover of this book, it's not appealing at all. If I had seen it in a shop I'd have never picked it up. I liked the relationship between Lorna and Penny as I felt it was a realistic portrayal of what could happen in real life. Lorna had a similar up bringing to Penny and I feel like she thought she had to try and make a difference in her life and make her happier. Was not a fan of this book, I usually finish a book in two days after two weeks I [...]

    I won a copy of this book from this site. Although it's not my normal type of book I liked the sound of it and entered. I did enjoy reading it.From very early on in the story you really get a feeling of sorrow for young Penny. The wording used in the story really gives you the feeling that her mother didn't want her and she was a problem. Dispite not being wanted by her mother Penny turns out to be a lovely young lady. Throughout the whole book Penny faces problem after problem but finds a way t [...]

    I won this in a Good Reads giveaway. What a good book to win!I enjoyed reading this. It was more of a lighter read than my previous book I read and that was just what was required! I chose my next book to read by the mood I feel in and quite often in contrast to the previous read.This pulled me in emotionally and I wanted to know what happened to the characters. It was sad but obstacles of their upbringing were conquered in a satisfying way.Well written and thoroughly enjoyed!

    I won this books from a recent giveaway and I am so pleased that I did. This is the first book by Kitty Neale that I have read and it won't be my last. Brilliantly written with an engrossing story line and believable characters. Kitty Neale is clearly a talented author and I am keen to read some more of her books as soon as I can.

    A great read which takes us from the Kent coast to the heart of London life for a burlesque dancer. We see what it means to be young and trying to start out in life with no true family as support. We also see the meaning of family and belonging. Although this title says Abandoned, Penny is never truly abandoned. She has lots of love and support from all the right people.

    Not badI had read books by this author before but could remember which ones. I saw this free a while back and got it just realised it was one of the ones I have read and not the best.

    I was dubious at first as whether to give it a go or not, however I’m glad I did a thoroughly enjoyable tale and characters.

    Won from Good reads first reads so feel bad leaving a bad review, but I had to abandon half way through - and getting that far was a struggle.

  14. Marian on said:

    Started off as good story but then seemed to fizzle out somewhat. Certainly wasn't the sort of book that you could not put down.
