Another of C. Cookson's wonderful looks at human nature,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Thursday Friend (Hardcover)
At first, the plot does not seem unusual. As events unfold and the lengths that humans may go to in order to fulfill themselves are revealed, one is fascinated by what happens next. While I am not usually sympathetic to female characters who are "pushovers" - seeing the heroine come out of her unhappy life and begin to take charge, made me completely sympathetic with the heroine of this book. I thought that the two best characters in the book were a young girl (Maggie) and an older name (Peter). I continue to love C. Cookson and applaud her 92 years as a Dame of the British Empire, and a talented writer who has brought so much pleasure to so many people.
