Details


The Dwelling Place
County Durham, 1830s

When fifteen-year-old Cissie Brodie loses her parents to cholera, she is forced out of the family cottage and left to raise her nine brothers and sisters by herself. Although desperately poor, strong-willed Cissie determines to build a new home for them all, their own little shelter to keep them from the workhouse.

They have friends, but charity cannot always spare them the harsh reality of their struggle and when Cissie attracts the unwanted attentions of a local landowner, her world seems close to collapse.

Can love, when it arrives, teach her not to fear the world beyond the dwelling place?

Catherine Cookson was the original and bestselling saga writer, selling over 100 million copies of her novels. If you like Dilly Court, Katie Flynn or Donna Douglas, you'll love Catherine Cookson.

The Lady On My Left
Alison Read, orphaned when she was two years old, had for some years lived and worked with Paul Aylmer, her appointed guardian. Paul, an experienced antique dealer whose business thrived in the south-coast town of Sealock, had come to rely on Alison, who had quickly learned the trade.

But when he asked her to value the contents of Beacon Ride, a chain of events was set off that led to the exposure of a secret he had managed to conceal. Now Alison’s relationship with Paul for many years came under threat, and she realised that only by confronting the situation head-on would she restore the happiness she once had and achieve the ambitions she sought.

This is one of Catherine Cookson’s more unusual novels: part-mystery, part-love story, with fascinating glimpses of the world of antiques in the 1960s.

The Tinker's Girl
Cumbria, 1870s.

Just before her fifteenth birthday Jinnie Howlett is offered a position as maid-of-all-work at a farm near the Cumbrian border. She hopes this will be a welcome relief from the workhouse she knows too well.

But when she meets her brutish employers Jinnie realises she has only exchanged one life of drudgery for another. She is grateful when one of the sons befriends her, but it isn't long before Jennie sees how tempting life is beyond her place of work . . .
