I am spellbound every time I pick up a novel by Catherine Cookson I feel I know each and every one of her characters and cannot wait to read the next book. The Mallen Litter is another of her amazing follow ups to the original Mallens and I cannot wait to get the next one in the series She has certainly convinced me to read them all. I don't have a favourite as each and every one is as enthralling as the last. If you like real life, these are the novels for you. For humour as well, the Mary Anne series is undoubtedly brilliant. Thankyou Amazon for making it possible to read these lovely books.
