Book Blog Tour & Book Review: The Hat Girl From Silver Street by Lindsey Hutchinson

Lindsey Hutchinson is fast becoming one of my favourite authors and I am very pleased to be doing another review of one of her books.

The last book I reviewed by Lindsey Hutchinson was Minnie’s Orphans and I fell in love with era as well as Lindsey’s storytelling style.

The Synopsis

Life is tough for Ella Bancroft. After her father, Thomas, is wheelchair-bound by an accident at the tube works, the responsibility for keeping a roof over their head falls to Ella. Ella’s mother died when she was ten, and her sister Sally lives with her no-good, work-shy husband Eddy, so is no help at all.  If she and her father are to keep the bailiffs from the door, then Ella must earn a living.

But Ella is resourceful as well as creative, and soon discovers she has a gift for millinery. Setting up shop in the front room of their two-up, two-down home in Silver Street, Walsall, Ella and Thomas work hard to establish a thriving business. Before long, the fashionable ladies of the Black Country are lining up to wear one of Ella’s beautiful creations, and finally Ella dares to hope for a life with love, friendship and family.

Meeting the man she longs to marry should be a turning point for Ella, but life’s twists and turns can be cruel. As the winter grows colder, events seem to conspire to test Ella’s spirit. And by the time spring is approaching, will the hat girl of Silver Street triumph, or will Ella have to admit defeat as all her dreams are tested.

My Thoughts

Another gem from Lindsey Hutchinson!

What an inspirational and impressive young girl, Ella, is – I finished this book on International Women’s Day and it was totally fitting.

Ella is one of the strongest heroine’s I’ve had the pleasure to read for a very long time.

She lost her mum at a young age, her older sister wasn’t too helpful and her brother-in-law is even worse – I really felt for Ella, having to care for her dad and provide food and keep a roof over their heads.

Her boss took her for granted and treated her badly, so I was over the moon when she decided to start up her own business with the support of her father – this was an excellent move.

The book is written at a good pace and in the usual Lindsey Huthinson writing style that draws you in, I love how real and relatable all the characters feel, I felt as if I knew them personally.

Read this book if you want a great story with an inspiring heroine.
