And dies they have no option but to move into anven sualid neighbourhood But Ruth is still determined to keep their secret at all costs That is until their father dies unexpectedly and an ver desperate Ruth and Glynis find themselves living hand to mout.

A brilliant fantastic book that had me hooked from the first page Good story with good characters made it really njoyable I did like Ruth Daviesshe was a tough character who wasn t whimsical or pathetic like a lot of girls around that Language and Linguistics era tended to beI really did not like her mum Caitlin thoughshe was never done moaning and whining aboutverything She made the decision to stand by her daughter and say the baby was hers but she never let up about what a whole lot of trouble it was for her and refusing to help in anyway She only seemed to get worse as the story went ona real self centred cowThe only big letdown for me was the Divertimento ending which was utter craplike talk about coincidencesas if Glynis would just happen to meet up with him out of nowhere after all this timejust wise up It totally ruined the whole They shared a secret no one mustver knowWhen seventeen year old Ruth Davies' father is invalided out of the Great War the whole family has little choice but to move to the infamous Tiger Bay area of Cardiff Not only faced with a life of adversity Ruth an.

Ook for me then as it was so Love Is a Fairy Tale enjoyable until then The wholending was totally rushed and didn t Promise at Dawn even have a properndingit was ridiculous It s as if there s a few chapters missing from it somewhere or at least there should be uick EndingThis was okay reading went on a bit and I got a bit bored at times Ending could have been a bit imaginative Wasn t sure I was going to like this book as its set in the arly 1900 s ariound the first world war bit I m loving it Maybe because its uite different to the contemporary books I normally choose to read Enjoyable but needs to be read with a pinch of salt Some troubles were solved without any xplanation and suddenly But overall I Bangkok Wakes to Rain enjoyed it Very predictable Does not touch feelings of the characters Unemotional Tells a story of struggles but the characters are D her mother Caitlin also share a secret one that no onelse must The Right Sort of Man (Sparks Bainbridge Mystery ever knowRuth and Caitlin's wages are barelynough to put food on the table let alone pay the rent And an increasingly neglected young Glynis runs wild When Caitlin contracts tuberculosis.
