Format: Paperback
Ellen Jebeau married a man who did little but dream, and who then died with debt his only legacy. Whatever else her marriage had lacked, however, she had her son Joseph. She resolved he should have all in life she had missed and to achieve that end, she would stop at nothing.

It was Sir Arthur Jebeau, her late husband's brother, who came to her aid, and soon Ellen and Joseph were living at the old fmaily seat at Screehaugh. It was a convenient arrangement, one which Ellen was not slow to recognise could work to her advantage, for Sir Arthur was a widower and Screehaugh had no mistress . . .

That was in 1926, but the working out of so many increasingly intertwined destinies would continue for twenty more years and only come to final resolution with Joseph Jebeau's escape from the traumatic heritage of his mother's ruthlelss ambition and his emergence as his own true self.

A nice and gripping perspective of the human soul and human understanding and perception of love.
A must read!

The book sent was of substandard quality and not fit for sale. It looks like a sample copy that is sent to bookshops prior to release or one that is enclosed free in a magazine. The width and length of the book was much shorter than normal paperbacks, the margins were non existent, the quality of the paper was not good enough and there was actually no price on the book. Amazon - what are you thinking of. - this is completely unacceptable - it looks as though you have sent me some sort of sample book and for the price of £9.99 !

Catherine Cookson's done it again! Loved it. Good for all Cookson fans. I had one or two very late nights with this one.

Very gripping reading. Found it hard to put down sometimes. It took twists and turns I wasn't expecting but ended how I hoped it would
