One of four books that should be read in the proper order as one story picks up where the former one ends. The characters are interesting, there is nice play between the haves and have nots and the Bailey family is unique in being made up of people of different social classes. There were interesting challenges for the members in each generation most, but not all, handled successfully.

Catherine Cookson is one of my favorite authors. I have read about 80 of her novels. I do prefer her stories that are set in the mid to late 1800s or early 1900s. Perhaps this is why I didn't enjoy this book as much as I have most of the others. It is set in the 1950s as I interpreted it. It is a really difficult book to get involved in. I did read the Bill Bailey Chronicles version, which actually includes 3 books: Bill Bailey, Bill Bailey's Lot, and Bill Bailey's Daughter. The last 2 were more interesting that the first one, but of course you would need to read the first one in order to understand the others.

This series of books by Catherine Cookson are great. I have just finished # 3 and so looking forward to the next book. If you have not read these books then all I can suggest is that you start ASAP.!!! Great story lines, characters are so real, and I for one will continue reading them for a long time to come .I am sure you will enjoy the books as much as I have. Although my husbands name always appears on the reviews I (Margaret McGrory) am the one whe reads all the books on Kindle. He still prefers the hard back type !!!!

A tale as only Catherine Cookson can tell it.!!! Thoroughly enjoyed it only half way through the story when I had to order the next two in the series. Now on the third book and will have to get the fourth in the series. Anyone reading this will feel the same as I did I am sure .Great story line, in all books. Go for it !!!!!!

After finishing the Mary Ann series on 20 December 2013, I had to find another series, and right from picking up Bill Bailey on 20/13/13 I was hooked. This is the first in a series of 4 and you can be sure I will read and re-read this series. There are so many aspects in this book, which i have almost finished, that can be related to either personally, or what you have experienced yourself, through others, in life. A great read.

Any book by Cookson is worth reading and I liked Bill Bailey. A bit differant from most of her books--If you like Bill Bailey you must read the next two books about Bill and his ready made familey--it is worth your time

Wow who wouldn't want a husband and family man like Bill Bailey. Doesn't it just show, if you put your mind to it what you can do with your life - a real example - i know it is fiction but it was a great read
