Mary Morony, Author of Apron Strings, Done Growed Up and If It Ain't One Thing

Recommended Read

An excellent read, entertaining, lots of bits that made me smile – the misunderstandings of Sallee and her siblings about the things they hear – and a few heartrending moments too. The characters were well drawn, no over romanticised portrayals of the coloured servants, but I liked how the children were so loyal to Ethel despite her problems. Don’t read expecting ‘happy ever afters’, it leaves you hanging a bit at the end with some loose ends – so much so that I had a look to see if there was a sequel (sadly not yet anyway).
