5.0 out of 5 stars Return to Jarrow is the last of the Jarrow Trilogy and an excellent story! Nov. 4 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book ends the trilogy of the famous author Catherine Cookson's family and concentrates on Catherine, also known as "Kitty" to her family. As she becomes aware of the circumstances surrounding her birth and who her mother really is, Catherine longs to know the identity of her father. When she learns he was a "gentleman" from her aunt she begins to identify with that part of her parentage and, working hard to rise above the poverty she was raised in, she becomes successful in her job at the workhouse laundry and seeks to educate herself by devouring books she gets at the local library. She leaves Jarrow, relocating far away, and eventually becomes a home owner and meets her future husband, Tom Cookson. Throughout the story she has to deal with her alcoholic mother and the issues from her past. Again, as in "The Jarrow Lass and a Child of Jarrow," Janet Macleod Trotter tells a wonderful story that takes the reader along as the characters deal with the emotions generated by the hardships they face on a daily basis. Ms. Trotter has a wonderful imagination and great skill in leaving the reader wanting to read more of her writing. I will continue to be a reader of her books! I highly recommend this author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read Sept. 20 2011

This is the last book in the three part series that chronicles the life of Catherine Cookson. If you read the first two "The Jarrow Lass and a Child of Jarrow" then you must read "Return to Jarrow". It is the final book in the series, and i must say i was sad when the book ended. I highly recommend this series to readers that appreciate good narrative and colorful language.

Have read all 3 books, wonderful reading, they show an insight of how people had to live in those days, the squalor brought on by unemployment, the shame of being pregnant and unmarried, to be able to follow their lives was through these books was incredibly moving.

4.0 out of 5 stars Return to Jarow Janet Macleod Troter March 2 2014

This is a good follow on from A Child of Jarrow. I found all three of the trilogy very entertaining., if a little depressing at times.

Their trials and tribulations were grim at times, which made the better times more exciting.
This was a good story, the family felt like old friends by the time I had finished.

A very Catherine Cookson style, well written and quite believable
