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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Cracking Read 10 Mar 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
Always enjoy Josephine Cox's books and "Take this Woman" was no exception, particularly as I read it on my new Kindle.I did feel however that the book was a little short although that is perhaps a good thing, leaving the reader wanting more.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
'Take this Woman' I found to be worth purchasing and an enjoyable read - a real page turner. I don't very often give 5 stars but I thought this book deserves the rating. The ending was interesting and left me wondering if there was to be another follow on book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good 8 May 2014
By JULIA
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the book as I do all Josephine Cox books, however I did feel this was predictable. I knew the end about half way through and that Laura would end up with the man of her dreams.
I don't think she would have been so trusting with Pearce either, having fought so hard to get what she wanted. Having said that it is a definite page turner.
