    One thought on “To Turn Full Circle”

    1. What caught my eye about this book and what I especially loved is that it was compared to the style of Catherine Cookson It is.We ve got an exceptionally cheeky heroine LOVED her She s brass, speaks her mind, has funny thoughts, but her life is a shambles Everyone she meets is a dickwad Her father is dead, her mother, brother, this arsehole wants to rape her, her neighbor robs her, the town spreads rumors about her, she s homeless, hungrygood gawd, it s likewow How much can one person take But s [...]

    2. Emma has fallen on tragic times, losing both her family and her childhood home Taken in by a neighbour who is not as trustworthy as the local doctor would expect, Emma flees as soon as she is strong enough to venture out on her own.Emma makes her way back to the tied cottage she shared with her family to find that it is now being rented to a fisherman by the name of Matthew who is working for her father s former employer, Reuben Jago So begins the moving story of Emma s struggle to come to terms [...]

    3. I really enjoyed reading To Turn Full Circle and would definitely pick up another book by this author.The book tells the story of a young girl, Emma Le Goff, who has sadly been orphaned and lost her brother all in a matter of 6 weeks To rub salt in the wound, nasty landlord, Rueban Jago, throws her out of her home and burns her belongings She is left with nothing and nobody The only person she has any sort of friendship with is Seth one of Rueban Jago s sons This, in itself, is enough to put pre [...]

    4. Sometimes life s not about wishes and dreams but about making the most of the situations we find ourselves in It is 1909 Emma Le Goff is fifteen, and as the novel begins she is recovering from illness at the house of a neighbour in the small fishing village in Devon When she regains her strength and faculties, she remembers the deep sadness that has gone before She has experienced three huge losses within a short space of time, first her father, then her mother and younger brother Johnnie passin [...]

    5. Originally reviewed at booksbiscuitsandtea Up until now, I haven t really ventured into the world of historical fiction I wasn t really intrigued by these stories and I knew they wouldn t be my cup of tea But then I saw To Turn Full Circle and something changed I genuinely liked the sound of this story, the story of a young girl with a difficult past, and decided that this novel would be a great way for me to branch out and to start my journey into unknown territory And I have to say, it was def [...]

    6. We first meet Emma Le Goff as she is recovering from an illness She s staying with a neighbour, Mrs Phipps, who appropriates the money left by Dr Shaw to buy her food so Emma is weak Not only physically weak from the illness but also from not being nourished From the moment Emma steps out to go back to her home, Shingle Cottage, trauma seems to follow her every footstep yet despite that, she is a lead heroine who does not let circumstances affect her spirit and always fights for her own corner.W [...]

    7. Poor Emma, she sure lived in a village filled with bitches and bastards People can be so cruel, but then they can be so kind too and not ask for anything in return It kind of reminded me of the Catherine Cookson stories, her heroines always have a hard time before finding their way and luck.Emma is 15 when her parents die and the crappy village she lives in does not make things better She is on her own, but she is strong and wont let anyone push her around That is what I liked about her, her wil [...]

    8. Review to comeEmma stole my heart from the first page I grieved with her and experienced rage on her behalf I was very intrigued about what had brought her so low I admired her grit and determination to stand on her own feet and prove all the naysayers wrong I had no idea this book was part of a trilogy when I started reading it.Seth was a conundrum for me I liked him for the most part but wasn t able to understand some of his choices I understand both Emma and Seth are young, but they seemed ol [...]

    9. A very enjoyable read it didn t take me long to be hooked into the story I really liked Emma, despite being young, she was resilient and fiesty having to overcome some difficult situations and prejudices against her She had to make the most of the circumstances forced upon her and often comply to the wishes of those around her who had her best interests at heart although it could sometimes be argued just whose best interests were at the fore.Seth, Emma s long time and all time love, didn t alway [...]

    10.

    11. Life was hard for the average working person in an English fishing village in 1909 and I loved how thoroughly I was transported back in time to a place and era so different from today The book was a series of interesting contrasts, reminding me of how much we take for granted with today s social safety net Yet the young heroine, through her own initiative notwithstanding her inevitable youthful mistakes that only made her endearing was able to forge something meaningful and beautiful out of her [...]

    12. Set in a small fishing village in Devon during the early 1900 s, this fascinating saga draws the reader into the daily life and mindset of the time The heroine is feisty to say the least, and although life has dealt her a pretty rotten hand, she has the courage to stand up for herself and face down her enemies She has to battle the prejudices of the time, as well as some very nasty villains, but with the help of friends and the man who loves her, problems that seem insurmountable are ultimately [...]

    13. A stunning novel from author Linda Mitchel The writing style was fantastic and I honestly felt as though I was walking through the pages of the book as the characters did I loved the development of the characters and storylines and the will they, won t they romance between the two main characters I loved that at some moments I just wanted to bang their heads together and yell at them to talk to each other, and not to keep assuming things This is always a plus sign for me, as it shows how deeply [...]

    14. A beautiful debut set in Devon I could really picture Devon back then and the characters are so real Linda Mitchel has a great talent for making her story come alive I can t wait for the sequel Please can Matthew return

    15. I really enjoyed reading To Turn Full Circle and would definitely pick up another book by this author.I would definitely recommend it to fans of romantic historical fiction.
