In the saga genre, Glenda Young is a relative newcomer, but she has certainly made her mark - review by Karen's Book Blog

Another wonderful review just in from Freelance book reviewer, Karen Byrom, at Karen's Book Blog.

She says this about my new novel The Paper Mill Girl:

"There are plenty top names in the saga genre, and Glenda Young is a relative newcomer, but she has certainly made her mark with her series of stand-alone stories set in the mining village of Ryhope in the North East of England.

This story has all the ingredients any saga lover could wish for – poverty, hardship, illness, danger, and a baby who must be cared for at all costs. It’s action packed as Ruth careens from one challenge to the next. But there’s friendship, too, and romance of course

While there’s plenty conflict to be resolved, it’s the characters that make this story truly thrilling. Not just trustworthy, responsible, loyal Ruth but her family, friends, employers and enemies are all fleshed into life. ... From Bea to Mick to Sarah, daughter of the factory owner –  they’re all convincing, empathetic characters with their own strengths and flaws, and their own stories to tell.

Put them together in the atmospheric soup of Ryhope and its surrounding area where mines jostle with factories, the poor and the rich live separate, but occasionally intertwining lives, and everyone is striving for a better life for their families and you have a compelling story of life, love and ultimately hope for our strong and likeable heroine, Ruth."
