A wonderful tale about of several generations of women surviving the challenges and limitations of their era.
2.0 out of 5 starsA Daughters Inheritance kindle book
Reviewed in the United States on January 20, 2014
Just a very slow - tedious book that is written in a very simplistic narrative. The characters are poorly developed with insufficient depth and the historical aspects of the story are also only barely there. A multi generational book that revolved around generations of women of "Low" birth slowly climbing up the social ladder and with that to greater wealth. Not sure exactly if there was a message in it all - I would not exactly recommend.
5.0 out of 5 starsEnglish Society Changing with the Changing Times
Reviewed in the United States on February 24, 2012
A Daughter's Inheritance, like the Masterpiece series "Upstairs, Downstairs" and "Downton Abbey," shows both the wealthy and the labor classes reacting and adapting to times of upheaval in English society. Of particular interest here is the way women struggled over several generations for the right to vote, while they also campaigned for reform in labor laws. But history lessons aside, the real joy of reading A Daughter's Inheritance comes from the feeling of being adopted into a remarkable family, a line of mothers and daughters who will stay with you as friends long after you've closed the book. These are people to care about, and a satisfying book to thoroughly enjoy.
