Product Description: Maddy and Martin Brennan have a good marriage and two healthy children, Jess and Patrick. When Martin's lost at sea, though, Maddy's in for a shock: it transpires that her home is mortgaged and the family's finances are in a perilous state. Beaten down by a bitter feud with her brother and by her son Patrick's troublesome behaviour, Maddy carelessly steps in the path of a runaway horse and loses her life. It's left to young Jess to make something of the future. From near destitution she launches a business of her own, earning back the prosperity and respect her mother had in the end lost. But heartbreak lies ahead, and when love is on offer, is the man who wants Jess's heart worthy of it?

Product Description: A Catherine Cookson novel which explores the life and fortunes of a spirited girl who lived in an age when it was customary for servant-girls to do the bidding of their masters, and remember their place. Late in the 19th century, orphaned 14-year-old Jinnie Howlett leaves a northern workhouse. n nFrom the Back Cover nWhen young Jinnie Howlett's widowed father, a tinker man, died a pauper, she was indeed fortunate already to be an inmate of a northern workhouse, for with no other relatives, she might otherwise have ended up on the streets, a fate for children of her age that was, in the latter years of the nineteenth century, all too common. When, close to her fifteenth birthday and after years of toil and drudgery and an unfortunate experience at a previous workplace, she was at last offered a position as a maid-of-all-work, she was left in no doubt that this second chance was also her last. n nJinnie's employers were to be the Shalemans and her place of work Tollet's Ridge Farm, a bleakly isolated and run-down sheep farm way out beyond Allendale and towards the Cumbrian border. It was only a matter of weeks before she discovered that she had exchanged one kind of drudgery for another, for the Shaleman family - Rose, invalid wife of Pug and mother to Bruce and Hal - demanded so much of her that she almost became nostalgic about her years at the house, as she called it. Fortunately for Jinnie, however, Bruce soon recognised that there was more to this seemingly vulnerable girl than the other members of his family realised, and it was he who would defend her against the taunts and harassment of the brutish Pug and Hal. n nIt was when, by accident, she became acquainted with Richard Baxton-Powell, who owed his life to Bruce, that Jinnie realised how different and tempting life was beyond her place of work; although later, when the persistent attention Richard paid her became too obtrusive, she was to understand that her growing confidence and maturity owed more to her life with the Shalemans than to any outside influence. It was then that Jinnie Howlett was suddenly thrust into womanhood, and the path to her own destiny became clear. n nCatherine Cookson's latest novel is a magnificent example of this most popular author's incomparable talent for characterisation, exploring as it does the life and fortunes of a spirited girl who lived in an age when it was customary for servant girls to do the bidding of their masters and remember their place. With its brilliant evocation of the period, it will be hugely enjoyed by her millions of readers all over the world.

Emmy sees that marriage is her best way out and when Peter Wesley, First Officer aboard a cruise ship, asks her to marry him, she is over the moon. The newly-weds move to a pleasant house in a good district. They have a child, Diana, and all seems set fair for the little family. But Peter is killed and Emmy is left almost penniless. She and Diana are forced to move back into a vacant house in Nightingale Court, from whence Emmy gets a job in a busy restaurant.

Diana misses her mother dreadfully, but is buoyed up by the conviction that now Emmy is far away, two of her keenest suitors will be bound to lose interest. She is not to know that both men continue to see and to vie for Emmy's attention...

Product Description: The Second World War is now over and people must count the cost. Three women from very different backgrounds meet when they find themselves on Bristol Temple Meads station waiting for the return of their loved ones. Edna's fiance Colin comes home crippled. Charlotte's doctor husband, who was a loving and gentle father, returns a violent, disturbed man with no love for her and even less for their children. Polly, who is waiting for her GI boyfriend Aaron, is once again disappointed when he doesn't arrive. Adjusting to men who are very changed and, in Polly's case, to no man at all, is the core of this story. However, during the war years, the women have had to cope. They too have changed, and they harbor secrets that would be best kept.
