5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Souvenir 6 May 2014
Format:Paperback
Unlike most Coronation Street books, which try to cover a lot of characters over a long space of time, this book is all about one couple - The Croppers - and their 16-year relationship, crafted so lovingly by the Corrie writers, and performed so beautifully by actors Julie Hesmondhalgh and David Neilson.

From their first tentative meeting to the trials and tribulations of Hayley's trans status being uncovered, to their (two) weddings, fostering, prison, blackmail, secret son, and finally Hayley's tragic death - it's all here... written by a lifelong fan who cared so much about these two awkward lovely people.

With a beautiful and poignant cover illustration, and a deft writing touch, this book with bring back lots of memories for Corrie fans everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect addition for Corrie fans 16 May 2014
Format:Paperback
A wonderful wee book about the life and times of Roy Cropper and Hayley Patterson Cropper, a beloved couple on the British television show Coronation Street. These two were outsiders, shy and awkward and found in each other a soul mate. From 1998 to 2014 fans have followed their good times and their bad and supported them all the way to Hayley's tragic death from pancreatic cancer in January 2014. They quickly became one of the classic couples in Corrie history and will never be forgotten.

Glenda Young has written a short history of their storylines from the start to the end, touching on major ones and even the smaller ones you probably forgot. The chemistry between the characters and actors jumps off the page as it did off the screen and Glenda's portrait is loving and poignant. There's a forward by Julie Hesmondhalgh who played Hayley, as well. A book all Corrie fans will want.
