review The Linnet Bird: A Novel Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB In the claustrophobic mannered world of British India Linny Ingram seems the perfect society wife pretty gracious subservient But appearances can be deceptive Linny Ingram was born Linny Gow an orphan raised in the gray slums of Liverpool Sold into prostitution by her stepfather when she was only eleven Linny clung to the belief that she was meant for something som. I did enjoy the novel I really did but wow it is dark It shows that Linny Gow will do whatever is necessary to survive She has some horrible things done to here early in life and she has to fight hard to over come themWhat I liked most about the book is that Linny doesn t come out unscathed She comes away from the bad times changed She s not a Pollyanna character that one often reads about that usually bores me to tears She seems like what I think a real person might be Maybe she s what a real woman might have been during that time period of she wanted to try to escape the sad dirty path that had been laid before her
