More About the Author

Josephine Cox was born 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. She won the 'Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cliche after Cliche 11 Jun 2010
By shalee
Format:Paperback
I've only recently started to read novels by this author and I was bitterly disappointed in this book. The storyline was very predictable and the "falling in love" between Maddy and the Farmer was a complete cliche and rather unbelivable.
I have to admit to skipping various chunks, which is very unlike me, because I found the whole novel very dull.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed 17 Mar 2009
By Petra "I love to read" TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I was very disappointed in this book. I have read most of Josephines books though have to admit her latest books I have not enjoyed as much but this book I found was a waste of my time. I finished the book only due to the fact I kept hoping that it would start improving but sadly no!
It was a typical ending ...Josephine please start writing good books again before I give up buying your work.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit lightweight for our Bookclub 9 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback
We chose this book for our book club, as it was reviewed on the Times booklist. But we all found it a bit lightweight. As one of our members said, you felt like slapping her and telling her to stop being so silly!
An easy holiday read (we're all ex-pats living in NZ and the summer hols have just finished).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic novel 19 Oct 2008
Format:Paperback
Fantastic novel by Josephine Cox. I could not put it down, the plot was very good and I liked the opening where the students were in their house and they heard the most beautiful voice coming from next door. From then on I liked the different settings for the book - Bedford, then Blackpool and back to Bedford again.

Jo Cox is very good at descriptions such as the high speed chase on the roads with Maddy in the car. There were surprising twists and turns and I really liked the book.

Congratulations to the publishers for a very fine book cover.

All in all a very good book and well done Jo.

This book has it all - danger, spite, glamour, love and romance. All centred around a woman's love for her son.

Quite enjoyed the story with some twists. Not like her usual books but worth a read. More up to date than lots of her other stories.
