This finale of the saga about three sisters in England who run away from an abusive father is the last book in the trilogy. This book focuses on the youngest sister, Renie.
Renie leaves her home and is on the run with sister Nell. She begins her desperate journey at age 16 and lives with a pregnant Nell who has married the baby's father. Life with Nell and her husband in the slums is hard. Ernie wants more from life than marriage to a man who will make her a slave. Renie becomes employed in a canteen and her hard work and efforts to better herself are rewarded with the opportunity to become a waitress in a hotel catering to the wealthy.
The first half of the book relates the progress of Renie and also introduces Gil and his life. Gil is the third son of a wealthy father and their strained relationship is examined mostly after Gil has an accident which leaves him with a physical disability. The story was interesting at this point.
Unfortunately, the second half of the story begins a slide into predictable and rushes into downright sappy. This ruined the book for me as Gil and Renie have one chance encounter lasting minutes and from then on cannot get each other out of their heads. Needless to say, too much too fast. I almost didn't finish reading it.
Not much of a finale after the first two books.
