    eBook Mary Hooper Î Î Fallen Grace ePUB â fallen epub, grace download, Fallen Grace PDF5 Words Tragic fortunate historical destitute schemingI haven't read Mary Hooper in a long time perhaps since high school but when I saw this in the library I though why not? and picked it upThis was a great easy read I could turn page after page without having to think too much but I did still empathise with Grace and Lily and I wanted to cry at the injustice of it all I liked the character of Grace how grounded and practical and strong she was and I really enjoyed reading herIt was so tragic one thing after another But it was so compelling and real that it was never too much This book was tragic and heartbreaking with a little bit of light relief a very little bit to stop it becoming too muchI liked the ending anything different wouldn't have worked despite the predictability

    eBook Mary Hooper Î Î Fallen Grace ePUB â fallen epub, grace download, Fallen Grace PDFI love a good historical fiction now and then in particular from the Victorian era and so was extremely excited about reading this book I wasn't disappointed Fallen Grace is a rags to riches tale of the very best kind and filled with the characters that make this kind of book so compelling There's tragic Grace poverty stricken and badly treat yet hard working kind and fiercely loyal; the detestable Unwin family rich cruel and conniving and the handsome young solicitor Mr James Solent champion of the underdog It reminds me a little of those saga's I would steal from my Mum's bookshelves years ago I did love reading those books but often found them too long spanning such a lengthy time period I would get bored or frustrated at yet another tragedy for the poor heroine Covering just a year in Fifteen year old Grace's life Mary Hooper's latest book doesn't suffer this problem I

    eBook Mary Hooper Î Î Fallen Grace ePUB â fallen epub, grace download, Fallen Grace PDFSet in Victorian London Fallen Grace is the story of a poor young girl who's exposed to the seedy underbelly of the funeral trade What first drew me to Fallen Grace was the historical aspect of the story I love history and historical fiction and Fallen Grace had an interesting hook with the exploration of the funeral trade in Victorian London Mary Hooper must have done extensive research prior to writing Fallen Grace and this shows in the detailed scenes she has written This attention to detail was a large part of why I enjoyed Fallen Grace It brought a real uality to the story and made the characters seem like real people who would have existed during that time period The beginning of Fallen Grace got my attention immediately I fel

    eBook Mary Hooper Î Î Fallen Grace ePUB â fallen epub, grace download, Fallen Grace PDFCharles Dickens for tweens This had some good ideas but the presentation is overly watered down It's all too clearly YA that polite veil ruins much of the suspense grit macabre pastiche the author is trying to achieve For all the sophisticated themes scenarios that went into this nothing felt mature enough to do them justice There was no urgency even in the direst of conditions because being raped in the poorhouse losing your home dropping your dead baby in a stranger's casket a fiendish inheritance scheme ARE dire scenarios they deserved oomph The best I can say is that it might inspire some tweens to seek out classic Victoriana potboilers when they reach that level of readership
