About The Book
My Thoughts On "Nobody's Girl"
This is a wonderful family-centred story of courage and resilience. Highlighting the struggles we have in learning to trust people and build friendships when faced with unimaginable heartache and loss.
Despite the heartbreaking trials faced by the main characters, this story remained utterly enthralling, drawing me in right from the start, I just didn't want to put it down!
The story is believable and relatable. It's a fabulous family life saga which I absolutely loved reading. There are some interesting and lovable characters and Tania has developed them and their relationships so very well.
She's used such beautifully descriptive language that you'll be sucked right into the story from the first page. Set in the Kent countryside in the years leading up to the Second World War, you are transported to a time before electricity and plumbing were found in most houses. A land of stately homes on rolling hills and cosy cottages on working farms.
I was happy that this book had no explicit scenes and used clean language for the most part. My only complaint would be that there were a few swear words, but they were in line with a couple of the characters and were not a regular occurrence.
Overall I thought this book was fantastic! I fell in love with some of the characters, felt their pain and their joy and loved being transported back in time to those gorgeous landscapes.
I couldn't wait to see what would happen next and picked up my Kindle to continue reading every moment I could. I cannot wait to read the sequel!
A powerful story, interesting characters and relatable issues covered. I highly recommend this book!
