The story is totally believable, right down to the 'no loved lost' between Charlie and his sister.
One niggle, but one thats very common in the Catherine Cookson series.......they just stop! All the endings are similar, they just cut off as though the producers have ran out of film and time.
Much of the action takes place before and during the First World War, and some poor soul, born no doubt over 60 years after the armistice, must have gone to immense pains to try to make sure that all the details were as authentic as possible. Partly because the plot moves so slowly and so tediously, one begins to ignore the acting and the story, and one starts to concentrate on the cornucopia of historical details instead.Read more ›
I now own the whole set of films and wish that more could be filmed to be purchased
Service good no complaints
Cookson took up writing as a form of therapy to tackle her depression, and joined Hastings Writers' Group --- Her first novel, Kate Hannigan, was published in 1950 --- Though it was labelled a romance, she expressed discontent with the stereotype --- Her books were, she said, historical novels about people and conditions she knew --- Cookson had little to do with the London literary circus --- She was always more interested in practicing the art of writing --- Her research could be uncomfortable - going down a mine, for instance, because her heroine came from a mining area --- Having in her youth wanted to write about "above stairs" in grand houses, she later and successfully concentrated on people ground down by circumstances, taking care to know them well.
Cookson went on to write almost 100 books, selling more than 123 million copies of her books, her works being translated into at least 20 languages --- She also authored books under the pseudonyms Catherine Marchant and a name derived from her childhood name, Katie McMullen --- She remained the most borrowed author from public libraries in the UK for more than 20 years, only losing the title in 2004, which is testament to the ongoing popularity of her novels.Read more ›
