Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Catherine Cookson's novels are about hardship, the intractability of life and of individuals, the struggle first to survive and next to make sense of one's survival. Humour, toughness, resolution and generosity are Cookson virtues, in a world which she often depicts as cold and violent. Her novels are weighted and driven by her own early experiences of illegitimacy and poverty. This is what gives them power. In the specialised world of women's popular fiction, Cookson has created her own territory' - Helen Dunmore, The Times --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Catherine Cookson was born in Tyne Dock, the illegitimate daughter of a poverty-stricken woman, Kate, whom she believed to be her older sister. She began work in service but eventually moved south to Hastings, where she met and married a local grammar-school master. Although she was originally acclaimed as a regional writer - in 1968 her novel The Round Tower won the Winifred Holtby Award - her readership quickly spread throughout the world and her many bestselling novels have established her as the best-loved of contemporary writers. After receiving an OBE in 1985, Catherine Cookson was created a Dame of the British Empire in 1993. She was appointed an Honorary Fellow of St Hilda's College, Oxford, in 1997. For many years she and her husband Tom lived near Newcastle upon Tyne. She died shortly before her ninetysecond birthday, in June 1998. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

As are good and entertaining books of fiction there often occur plots with in the main plot. This was true in this Cookson novel, however, I for some unexplained reason, felt that this literary effort was a notch or two above Cookson's usually entertaining and intriguing run of the mill stories.

As always there is nothng more to say about a Catherine Cookson novel. Every one of her books I have read (and there are over 50) has kept me on the edge of my seat. The only complaint I have with her novel is that I can't get anything done at home because I can't put her books down until I have finished reading them. This includes standing with my Kindle in the grocery aisle. Charlotte Buelow
