Book Description

Despite a deathbed warning from her beloved mother, Phoebe Mulligan has no choice but to throw herself on the mercy of her uncle, Edward. Wrenched from all she holds dear, the tragic young girl is delivered to Blackburn town, where she must live in a household terrorised by the cold, forbidding presence of her mother's brother. Phoebe cannot understand why she is treated so harshly by Edward Dickens. She is not to know the guilty secret that lies in his past, a secret that casts a sinister shadow over his feelings for his lovely niece . . .

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. Her strong, gritty stories are taken from the tapestry of life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jessica's Girl 28 Oct. 2003
By B.Read
Format:Paperback
I would really have 3 1/2 stars but it wouln't let me - haha Ne way, I think this book was a great book. It was full of surprises and the twist was quite grose and werid but amazing! I really liked how it all turned out in the end. It follows the fortunes of an East End girl who, on the death of her mother, goes to Blackburn to live with her uncle's family and has to cope with his cruelty to her. ‘Jessica’s Girl’ by Josephine Cox made me upset and also lucky to have grown up knowing both my parents. This novel was set in the early 1900’s where women were of lower class and less opportunities. Being female myself I am pleased that times have changed and that women (altho i'm not a sexist) do count for something more than just to have children all there lives!!!!!!!Have fun reading this awes book

I really like this book. Especially as I used on the railway station, which is mentioned in the story, it's surprising how much Blackburn has changed over the years. Also all of Jospehine' s books are brilliant. I have them all.
