"I have you fast in my fortress,
And will not let you depart,
But put you down into the dungeon,
In the round tower of my heart.
And there will I keep you for ever,
Yes, forever and a day,
Till the walls shall crumble to ruin,
And moulder in dust away!"
I would give the book 10 stars if I could.
What a beautiful story. The thing that hooked me was the round tower poem -above- and after that I couldn't stop reading.
I don't want to spoil not even a bit of the story so I'll tell you very little about it. It's about Van & Angus, she's from a wealthy influential family, he's the son of the house maid. Van gets into trouble & runs away from the luxuries she's lived with all her life. Angus aspires to be rich & win her. What happens is nothing they prepared for.
The "Round Tower" won the Winifred Holtby award
for the best regional novel of 1968
Catherine Cookson stories are multi dimensional, her characters are real, their problems are real & the way they deal with them is real. Her stories are memorable, especially this one. Read IT! It's a keeper.
READ IT! & thank me later ;)
Vanessa Ratcliffe, is the daughter of 'God-Almighty,' Jonathan Ratcliffe, one of the town's richest men. She lives in one of the most respectable areas, Brampton Hill and has to contend with her parents and sister, who all value their social prestige.
Angus Cotton is a foremen in one of Jonathan's businesses. His mother is the Ratcliffe's daily and he's big, rough, uncouth and uneducated.
They are from two different worlds, but events brings them together and change their lives-and those of their families-forever.
Cookson has penned another faboulus read where the narrative is gripping and engrossing, the characters leap off the pages and the writing is extraordinary. Highly Recommended!
The people are so vibrant, her description is excellent, you can picture them in your mind. I've read most of her books but this is definitely my favourite.
