    One thought on “Molly”

    1. This is the story of an Irish girl who left Ireland for England in the 1900s. It tells of how she survived and made a fortune. A very good, clean book.

    2. A great story about a strong and corageous woman (a real, believable character) who worked hard, faced life fearlessly and really made it (and made it big) in a time when women were nothing more but the mere property of men and she did it all while juggling men, married life, family and children! I loved this book!

    3. 3.5 starsAn engaging rags-to-riches story set in late 19C London through WWI. Full review here at Booklikes.

    4. I liked following a family through the history of Britain leading up and completing WWI, butI hated Molly. I'd have been happier reading a book from the perspective of one of the other 'Mrs. Benton' characters.
