About the Author
Josephine Cox was born in a cotton-mill house in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching - and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the 'Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.
Josephine has now given up teaching in order to write full time. She says 'I love writing, both recreating scenes and characters from my past, together with new storylines which mingle naturally with the old. I could never imagine a single day without writing, and it's been that way since as far back as I can remember.'
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
This story is filled with joy and tears, happiness and loss, but the plot is strong and overall, it is definitley a book that will warm your heart and keep you interested from start to finish. There is indeed a sequel, Journey's End, but the author has changed the names of the characters in the sequel, so if one finds this book confusng, the sequel may be completely mind boggling. However both books are good and well worth the read. Two other recommendations by this author are "The Lady Who Left" and what appears to be a sequel, "Jinnie". All the books mentioned are attention grabbers and make for easy reading - enjoy!
The Journey is again an AWESOME book!!!!
