The perfect gift for all readers of historical fiction is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker
Read this book in the 70's when I was a teenager, recently re-read it and now I remember why it has always been in the back of my mind as a great story. Catherine Cookson brings to life Cissie and the Brodie family, struggling to survive against all odds as only an author who has experienced hardships and come from the bottom up can. I always feel that Catherine Cookson "knows what makes people tick". The dialect of the common people in that part of England during that era is fun to read. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
This is one of Cooksons best books.A dark tale..but in true Cookson syle..it has the power to make the reader laugh with its unexpected twists and turns...of the fate of the lives of the people at the farm.
As to be expected from this author...a first class read.
You will be involved in the lives of her characters..you get to know them as well as your nieghbours..perhaps better.
Share thier sadness and triumphs..love and hate them..then as Ms Cooksons takes us along our opinions change ..real people in real situations
the true emotions of people are layed bare for the reader.
Set in a bleak landscape..the depth of her characthers..astound the reader..that so much ..love ..hate,,and raw emotion shine out in this book
One Cookson book is never enough for the reader
it is the start of a relationship with this Author that will stay with you a lifetime.

Having very little time to read during the day i find that i end up reading in bed, this book had me losing sleep there was never a piont i felt was right to put it down, you want to read the next bit, so many twists and turns, you never know what to expect.
I found this to be a really good read so much so that i wished the author had wrote a follow up to the story.

I always try to download a Catherine Cookson,from the Prime lending library,and this one didn't disappoint..It was exceptional,her style of writing in my opinion can not be matched,her story flows,with great characters,and always a great story,my only problem after reading her books is trying to find one to equal it.

This booked had my interest from the first few pages. I chose 5 stars because the story took me into the lives of the characters and leaves me missing the characters when I've finished the book. This book gives everything that I have come to expect from Catherine Cookson books.
