Product Description

Book Description

A powerful and moving portrayal of innocence and strength in adversity - the unforgettable beginning of Catherine Cookson's popular Hamilton trilogy

From the Back Cover

Hamilton Goodbye Hamilton Harold

Maisie could never be quite sure when she met up with Hamilton; most likely, it was when she started talking to herself as an often lonely seven-year-old. Hamilton, an imaginary horse, had to remain a secret for many years, for what would people think of Maisie if she revealed that the only friend she had was a horse who acted as her guide, philosopher and confidant?

Life was difficult enough for Maisie without that, and increasingly so as she grew to womanhood and became a wife. But if she could not talk about Hamilton, she could at least write about him. And write she did, with results that would broaden her horizons far beyond her native Tyneside.

Collected together in one volume for the first time, the three Hamilton novels tell a story in which Catherine Cookson blends humour and pathos to irresistable effect.

I ve always been a keen lover of Catherine cookson books and have always found her writing ,absoloutly wonderful, with dramatic chapters and stuff in it that will make me cry!
When i first read hamilton, immideialtly i felt that this book was completley different to all of her others, it was different settings and a different time zone than her usual.
All i can say is read this book (and all of the trilolgy if you can!) i dont want to spoil it for you so i wont say too much but this book is so funny and would be a delight for the people out there that have a good sense of humour.
If youve been down on your luck, been sacked, tired of work, relationship problems- this book will cheer you up so much but you cant read hamilton without reading the other 2 after! like i said funny book ,also makes you cry so awatch out men! its a whacky story about a woman who has an imaginary friend!!= A HORSE!!!!
please read it i can assure you that you will not be dissapointed!!
thanks

I thought Hamilton was great, really great. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the book. Hamilton ticks all the boxes for a great read in my book: great characters, interesting plot and a good setting. I liked the fact Hamilton was written in the first person. First person is my favourite narrative point of view when it works. A writer needs to pull it off though and Cookson makes it work beautifully with Maisie’s voice. I could have read her voice for hundreds of more pages. Masie is the type of heroine you can really get behind and root for. Who could read Hamilton and not want Howard to fall down the stairs and break his neck? The happy ending was a little twee though and made the novel a fraction less enjoyable. Maisie could have gotten away from Howard and started a new life without it being nauseating.

Imaginative and compelling story. Takes the reader into the sometimes sad and funny world of Maisey and her imaginative horse Hamilton. The characters are brought to life by the author with sensitivity to life and relationships.

Catherine always lifted you up as well as showed you the dark side of life has to be faced. She always showed you how, as this book defines, in all its shadows and light. Liz
