Starts off well but peters out and then falls flat..
17 March 2000 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

**possible spoiler**

No.. sorry - I don't think she would marry the guy who raped her no matter how "sorry" he was.

I liked the beginning - the character of Cissie was good and the story interesting - to say nothing of the countryside which has caused me to seriously consider moving to Great Britain. But at some point in the story the actions of the main character become improbable. I could understand her giving up her baby when she saw no way out... I could understand her not spending a dime (or shilling, I should say) of the money... But when the rapist shows up again all apologetic and she actually listens to him - no. When she is given back her child and then after a few days she decides to return the child to the paternal grandfather - no.

Too bad about that, it started off well.
