Product Description

Product Description

John Emmerson was a lonely man. He had a wife, a son, friends, but he was isolated from all the people and events about him by the tragedy of his past. Then he met Cissie, and for the first time his loneliness eased a little.

Cissie was everything that his wife Ann was not. She was warm, compassionate and generous. And she was quick to sense the needs of a desolate unhappy man.

But Cissie was also a young widow: poor, and with a young son to support. And John Emmerson was one of the town’s leading solicitors – a man of importance whose every move was watched by the local dignitaries…

From the Publisher

'Catherine Cookson's novels are about hardship, the intractability of life and of individuals, the struggle first to survive and next to make sense of one's survival. Humour, toughness, resolution and generosity are Cookson virtues, in a world which she often depicts as cold and violent. Her novels are weighted and driven by her own early experiences of illegitimacy and poverty. This is what gives them power. In the specialised world of women's popular fiction, Cookson has created her own territory' - Helen Dunmore, The Times

A great read, thoroughly enjoyed it. Couldn't put it down once I started it, so a few late nights, but well worth it.

So pleased to see this one as an ebook. A personal favourite. I read and reread it years ago. It's so emotional, even more so because the emotions are hovering just below the surface. I really cried at the end. Catherine Cookson is a fantastic storyteller.

This is another wonderful story from a wonderful author Catherine Cookson, all her books are heartwarming and very hard to put down, this book was no exception. I love all her story's, and have read them all some books two or three times.

Not the usual Catherine Cookson.....it did not hold my interest....characters were spinleless .I don't like her books written in more modern times. I think the best are in the 1800s or turn of the century....but.I do love this author
