I read all of Catherine Cookson's books some years ago and enjoyed them immensley. I recently re-read all of them and find that on a second look I found them all so very predictable, and was rather disappointed. However I'm sure that it is my tastes that have changed not the calibre of her story telling.

I read Catherine Cookson in my teenage years. I loved them. I am not sure if I would enjoy them as an adult, but it is only fair to rate them based on my experience at the time. And having read most of her books, I must have been a fan.

This book was from my mom's shelves (when she was in her early 20s)...occasionally I randomly pull one off the shelf and read it. Such a different writing style then now.
