it was ok
bookshelves: romance, historical
Read in August, 2014

SPOILER ALERT - This book includes a rape.

Catherine Cookson wrote so many books, sometimes they are a bit hokey, but I liked most of this book except for one very large thing. I don't believe that a rape victim would ever fall in love with their rapist. Because of this, I cannot give it a higher rating, although I liked most of the characters and admired the heroine Cissie's strength and fortitude immensely.

Enya-Marie Hi, this is a very big plot spoiler. Could you please at least put a warning on before posting spoilers or avoid posting them altogether?
It isn't fair or considerate to anyone who hasn't read the book.
