HASH(0xa215c588) out of 5 stars Return to Jarrow is the last of the Jarrow Trilogy and an excellent story! Nov. 4 2011
By Cydaida - 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!

HASH(0xa215c9b4) 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.
HASH(0xa215cbdc) out of 5 stars Return to Jarrow The last of the Jarrow Trilogy by Janet MacLeod Trotter March 11 2013

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.
HASH(0xa215cad4) out of 5 stars A brilliant heartfelt ending! April 23 2014

If there were any more stars, I would give them. I thoroughly enjoyed the trilogy, but this last book left me heartfelt and in tears. I cried as I read of Kitty and Tom losing their first baby, then the ensuing miscarriages. Watching Kitty grow from the tempestuous little girl from Jarrow into a young woman moving away to build a life off herself, settling into Hastings and finding friendship in a mother figure she'd never had to her courtship and marriage to the humble yet loving Tom Cookson. We have experienced the volatile destructive relationship between Kitty and her mother Kate, and we at last see them make their peace with each other as Kate finally tells Kitty what she had always longed to know - all about her father and what he was like. This was the most tearful a heartfelt part of the story because it was like everything had come full circle. And Kitty was free. Really free of the past that had haunted her for so long. And it was then, she could finally return to Jarrow. With Tom, Kitty had come home.

I was back with my beloved Catherine least that's what it felt like! The same flair for writing has been blessedly bestowed on Janet Macleod Trotter. Characters so real you feel they must be your own family and neighbours. Life in the raw but written with tenderness and love. Talk of sexual matters is not avoided but not written for titillation. I didn't have to flick through intimate sex scenes I have no desire to read. I have read the other books in this series and found them just as compelling and I can't wait to buy more books from this author!
