About the Author

Catherine Cookson was born in Tyne Dock, the illegitimate daughter of a poverty-stricken woman, Kate, whom she believed to be her older sister. She began work in service but eventually moved south to Hastings, where she met and married Tom Cookson, a local grammar-school master. Although she was originally acclaimed as a regional writer - her novel The Round Tower won the Winifred Holtby Award for the best regional novel of 1968 - her readership quickly spread throughout the world, and her many best-selling novels established her as one of the most popular of contemporary women novelists. After receiving an OBE in 1985, Catherine Cookson was created a Dame of the British Empire in 1993. She was appointed an Honorary Fellow of St Hilda's College, Oxford, in 1997. For many years she lived near Newcastle upon Tyne. She died shortly before her ninety-second birthday, in June 1998.

The Mary Ann Omnibus is an excellent book as all of Catherine Cookson's are. Having been an avid fan of hers for years I don't know how I missed all of the Mary Ann series when they were first written.

This is Catherine Cookson at her best
Her description of Mary Ann's emotions from being a little girl, through to being a wife and mother, as well as a daughter,are spot-on. I recognised so many of feelings that she described.
I laughed at some,almost cried and absolutely fumed at parts of the storyline.
Couldn't wait to find out what happened next, when reluctantly having to put it down.
I didn't want it to end, and felt bereft when it did
