Product Description

Book Description

The powerful rags to riches story of a girl who tries to defy social conventions . . .

Product Description

As the daughter of a mining family, Katie Mulholland is forced to find work as a scullery maid in the house of the Rosiers. But the beautiful young girl soon captures the eye of her employer’s evil son, who rapes her and leaves her pregnant.

Quick to dismiss Katie, the family forces her into a loveless marriage with the cruel manager of the Rosier mines. But Katie’s fate changes course when one man offers her the opportunity to make her own fortune, and to discover real love . . .

Spanning Katie’s life from 1860 to the height of WWII, this is a spellbinding, triumphant, timeless drama from the pen of a brilliantly skilled storyteller.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overdone 3 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's many years since I read a Cookson novel but I had some idea of what to expect - brave and beautiful protagonist struggles against poverty and great odds to achieve eventual happiness. My grandmother was a Jarrow lass and contemporary with Catherine Cookson and the stories she told of her own childhood bear out Cookson's fictionalised accounts of grinding poverty, desperation and the ever-present fear of losing ones job and ones home with absolutely no safety net.
In 'Katie Mulholland', however, I felt the author was in competition with herself to see how many Awful Things she could make happen to one character! Rape, unwanted pregnancy, wife-beating, murder, miscarriage of justice, corruption, false imprisonment, eviction and homelessness, incest, unrequited love - this book has it all and more.
I kept reading because I was bemused by the piles of ordure being heaped on the wretched Katie and wondering how on earth she could emerge for a satisfactory conclusion. Unfortunately, by the time I was two-thirds of the way through, I'd ceased to care and would have been happy enough to see Katie and the rest of the cast put aboard the Titanic and sent to the bottom of the ocean. Alas, the writer chose not to include that disaster in this saga of misfortune! By the time I got to the end of the book, I thoroughly disliked most of the characters - the words manipulative, scheming, complacent and smug all have an application here. I felt the ending was far from satisfactory although that, at least, reflects real life.
I've given it three stars because of the writer's skill in bringing to life a set of personalities and a way of living which is almost impossible for a modern audience to comprehend and for her evocation of Tyneside speech patterns which bring back many personal happy memories.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely 18 Sep 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought I had read all of Catherine Cooksons books, but this one had escaped me.
It's such a lovely story, a bit different to the usual Catherine Cookson books, but kept me turning the pages, i couldn't put it down.

A very good read enjoyed it from start to finish. The plot thickened and got you thinking what next will happen. Wanted to carry on reading after each chapter.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book - as I have every Cathrine Cookson book that I have read. Katie Mulholland is a story of a young girl and how life treats her.

I read this book years ago but since I enjoyed it so much then I am going to relive that pleasure soon. You are into the story from the first page and that does it for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked this book very much 17 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved this story, and was swept away with all that happened to Katie Mulholland. Bit disappointed when the book suddenly jumped about 30 years about three quarters through and I found it difficult to connect all the new characters to Katie. Nevertheless very good book.
