    1. A charming book about parallel lives in English historical settings with marriage cusp age girls, characterised as twins to reinforce the comparisons Val Wood moves the story along like a meandering carriage on a country road But, in the final chapters she adds a few horses and it gallops to the inevitable, romantic outcome for both girls It s an interesting insight into what we imagine would be the daily lives in these traditional settings It s a paperback, scaled down Downton Abbey really I pa [...]

    2. Years ago someone loaned me one of the early Val Wood books I can t remember which one, which says a lot , because of the local interest value I think I did finish it but other than it involving some smuggler type character on the Humber, I can t recall anything about it Recently, in my local library, I saw Rich Girl, Poor Girl on the Recently Returned shelf and being short of anything to read I thought I d give her another chance Probably I should have trusted my first reaction which was that i [...]

    3. This was the first Valerie Wood book that I read I did look her up, found that she had won the Catherine Cookson prize for her first book, but I never figured out what the requirements for the prize were it seems to go to popular, good reads type of books.The historical in her fiction is not the reason to read her books Things were different, and I don t think she ignores historical realities, but I do think the history is skin deep It is not an evocation of a particular time and place, like a [...]

    4. It s a really simple story with nothing much of conflicts Some are predicted from the first time of characters were introduced However, there s something in the way of the story telling that hooked me up I recalled a few other classic stories which have the same vibe of writing i m not saying that this is a copy of those but a mere similar feeling of it it is a good one.Polly Rosalie are total opposite with some similarities Both girls are 16 years old nearly 17, with light hair color lost their [...]

    5. This was the first book I read this year and I gave it 4 stars It s about two girls of 16, who both lose their mothers during childbirth on Christmas Eve 1860.Polly is brought up in virtual poverty and works in a factory in contrast Rosalie is brought up in wealth They are brought together and form a strong friendship I enjoyed this book but I didn t love it Most of the story is predictable from the beginning which is a bit annoying However I do like the writing style of this book and the author [...]

    6. Rich girl, Poor girl is one amazing novel by Val Wood I haven t read any others by her but definitely she has the most plot gripping writing style ever Even better than Enid Blyton Set in 1860, this book should have some elements of the period to incorporate that lifestyle into my mind I love how Val Wood didn t rush about changing events so much which most authors do because they think it could make a strong grip on the story with the readers .It was natural and beautiful I like Polly so much. [...]

    7. Really liked this different take on a Victorian coming of age story about 2 girls from vastly different backgrounds who are brought together by tragedy and become best friends I enjoyed it very much and would like to read books by Val Wood

    8. on the fifth chapter of this book by a local author, who is book signing this week, her new book which i havent bought yet, called the harbour girl at 18.99, bit pricey for me
