More About the Author

Cat Winchester was born in East Anglia. After her wanderlust finally abated, she settled in Edinburgh with her family, three dogs and a teacup dragon.

Despite suffering from undiagnosed dyslexia, Cat always had a desire to tell stories and indeed, credits her own and other people's tales for getting her through some of the toughest times in her life. Thanks to her dyslexia though, she never dreamed that she could become an author.

She insists that credit for her books also go to her editor and proofreader, whom she describes as 'the nicest grammar Nazi that you could ever hope to meet'.

I really enjoyed this book. Its a romantic tale of a couple who own a mill and employ people to work for them. Its a nicely written book and it would be good if there was a sequel to buy after reading this.

When I first read Elizabeth Gaskell's 'North and South' a couple of years ago, I wrote in my review that somebody should write a sequel to compensate for the rushed ending of the original. Catherine Winchester (and probably thousands of other fan fiction writers) has done just that, so how could I resist? And although no modern 'historical' novel can ever compare with the contemporary style and content of a story written over 155 years ago, 'Northern Light' is a quick, frothy and loved-up Happy Ever After that will satisfy readers who love the romance of 'North and South', and couldn't care less about history.

Picking up immediately where Mrs Gaskell drew to a halt - 'that woman!' - Catherine Winchester follows John Thornton and Margaret Hale into marriage, business expansion, and family life over the course of five or so years. In her foreword - disclaimer - the author debates whether or not to imitate Gaskell or lapse into a more modern style, and decides on a 'hybrid'. The dialogue is therefore hopelessly modern, along with the behaviour of the characters, which sits ill with the original text but works on the whole. 'The morals of the day just weren't going to cut it for a modern audience', Miss Winchester claims, backing up her theory with the erroneous statement that John and Margaret never even share a kiss (they do, but the very Victorian Mrs Gaskell refers to the clinch as 'delicious silence'). So instead of veiled gestures and almost crippling erotic tension, the 'modern audience' gets a lot of bedroom scenes and public displays of affection. I'm not complaining - I'm perfectly sure that Mr and Mrs Thornton would be totally smitten, albeit carefully and discreetly - but I did rather miss the rather more subtle romance of the original.

I am an avid reader of N&S fanfic and I liked this book. The only faults, in my humble opinion, were that some of the storylines were a little far fetched, such as Margaret working in the mill. I thought the ending was a little abrupt as well but I did enjoy the development of the story overall.

This sequel to North and South is an enjoyable, gentle story which is very reminiscent of the original book. I did however find that modern sensibilities intruded into the story at times. The most annoying aspect of the novel was the mention of a teddy bear on several occasions, a much loved friend from our modern childhoods, but one that did not exist until 1902.

Totally disappointing and very very annoying. I was so looking forward to reading this having enjoyed North and South so very much but Northern Lights was written in completely the wrong style and got the characters so very wrong. Avoid reading this if you want to keep the magic of North and South alive.
