The Mallen Secret
on 12 August 2008
Rosie has done it again! Managing to write another fab novel yet in the style of Catherine Cookson.
The Story has been written in such a way that you do not really need to read Cookson's Mallen Streak,Girl and Litter but to get an idea of the background, the character's and most important the reason for the bitterness between Constance and Sarah towards Anna then read away.
Rosie follows two story lines. One is the happenings between Ben and Hannah and how the Mallen curse still reins causing tragedy in the family, the other is following the secret of the books title. Not wanting to spoil it but this shows Rosie at her best as this story line is filled with more twists and turns! The book is a fantastic read, following Catherine's style and thought process as the novels climax is something very fitting and very 'Catherine' Just like all of Rosie's book's it is a page turner and you will not want to put it down.
