Dee--you should put more of a description in your title than just YA. Something to help catch people's attention for those non-OCD's out there who don't compulsively read every single post in this group. (Yes, the OCD in question IS me, before you ask)

After checking out the Catherine Cookson books I realize I have to come up with more details to persue this book. I read the book in the early 80's and she moves from the docks to a small town that has a grist mill. I'll keep trying. I just cannot seem to get it out of my head. I remember she had long red hair on the cover. (no she is not Anne)

Your right. Thanks. I'll work on better discriptions.

Dee, are you still looking for this book? If so, you can bump it every month or so so more people will see it.
