Return to Jarrow is the last of the Jarrow Trilogy and an excellent story! Nov. 4 2011
By Cydaida - Published on Amazon.com
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!

Must read Sept. 20 2011
By Nicky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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.
Return to Jarrow The last of the Jarrow Trilogy by Janet MacLeod Trotter March 11 2013
By E. King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
How enjoyable it is to find this fantastic author. Her style is so enjoyable that is makes the reader go right into the past. You are learning the suffering of the poor during war time along with the every day loves and heart break just like any other place in the world. The first book begins with Kitty's Grandmother. The second of the trilogy is Child of Jarrow, this centers around Kitty' Mother, Kate . In this, the last of the books details the suffering of Kate's child to learn she didn't have A real Father.
She learns from other little children that her older sister, Kate, is her real mother. On top of that her Mother is an alcoholic and there the shame is doubled for little Kitty. She never knows when she will be sent to the pawn shop or even have a heavy boot thrown at her head. She also suffers from a mysterous disease which causes horrible bleeding from her tongue and nose. She works hard to educate herself and have a career only to realise her whole life was pretending to be someone else rather then her true self.Fantastic book and highly recommended.
I loved Catherine Cookson's books and I didn't realize this trilogy ... July 5 2014

I loved Catherine Cookson's books and I didn't realize this trilogy was about her life, so I was really surprised when Tom Cookson showed up in her life. Loved it, her life was tragic and awesome at the same time. Well done.
