    One thought on “Mother's Only Child”

    1. Maria Foley, a young Irish woman, loses her chance to go to a prestigious clothing design school when her father gets in an accident and her mother loses her mind. Through another awful circumstance, she loses Greg Hopkins, the man she loves, and ends up marrying the disreputable Barney MacPhearson.Although this seems classifiable as a romance novel, I felt like the focus was on Maria's relationships with her family and the drama between her and her brutal husband. It started out slowly, but bec [...]

    2. This was an easy book to read with an interesting story set against the background of WWII and the post-war years with all its difficulties. It is the story of a young woman (who seems very mature for her years) and the problems she has to deal with in her marriage to a violent man. I enjoyed the book, but was a bit irritated by the grammatical and other errors, which could have been avoided with careful proofreading.

    3. An enjoyable light read of the hardships of a young Irish girl whose life would twist and turn but not for the better. From her scholarship to a design school through to her marriage to a bully and the aftermath. The love she missed out on but found again in a most unexpected place. The only problem is the writer gets a bit confused between the two main female characters but it doesn't really spoil the story.

    4. I loved this story so much, that I decided to keep the book, instead of giving it away. The story starts in the small town of Moville, in England, and follows the life of Maria Foley. It is a must read, and one that I found hard to put down.

    5. Brutal. The story goes from one tragedy to another; most of which would never happen today. Thank you for all the women who fought for the rights we now enjoy. Still a ways to go for full equality, but at least the fate for all isn't so bleak as it is for the characters in this book.

    6. Good read but ashame many mistakes like using the wrong character's name in some places and many grammar errors. I would of loved to have done the "editing" on this book.
