    2. 3.5 StarsA nice historical fiction set in the late 20s of last entury in a community of potters.Interesting characters and enjoyable story.

    3. Well writtenI thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author has a knack for bringing you back in time. I would've rated it a 5 had there not been so many typographical errors, but felt the story itself was good enough to rate a 4.

    4. Looking forward to reading. This book was originally published in 2001. It is an historical thriller set in 1920's European era. I have not heard of this author but she has been writing fiction since the 1960's. I hope the storyline is interesting.

    5. This book is an interesting historical novel about a pottery factory in England in the 1920s and the family and workers who lived nearby. The characters had a depth that brought them to life and made the reader care about what happened to them. The story was compelling, often highlighting the differences between life in the upper and lower social classes and the lack of women's rights in the time period. I enjoyed reading this novel.
