by Carol Clewlow

I'd never heard of the Author before until someone passed me the book to read. After reading this I will go on and read other books by her. 7/10 in my opinion.

The story is well written, flows well and gives an insight into the feelings and in some ways stigma that young people have to deal with when being brought up by religious parents. The story centres around Maud and is told as a flashback to her early life.

Maud's parents are deeply religious and attempt to bring Maud up the same way but as most teenagers do at some point in their lives they rebel and want to live life the way they want to live it. In some ways this was quite reminiscent of my upbringing as we were brought up to go to Church every week and I did rebel. Maud's parents are quite strict about her seeing young men and don't always agree with her choice of boyfriend/admirer and the fact that she wants to go out socialising in ways that they don't always agree with. We journey with her through her innocence to early adulthood and relationships.

The book has been likened to Oranges are not the only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson, so if you enjoyed that story then you'll more than likely enjoy this. At 119 pages of narrative this is only a short story but it certainly packs a lot into it.
