Tilly Trotter Widowed. Dame Catherine Cookson began writing novels when she was forty and has had nearly one hundred books published. In her twenties she moved to Hastings where, after the tragic loss of four babies and a mental breakdown, she began to use her experiences in the North East as the inspiration for novels which have sold over one hundred million copies around the world.

First a rich man's mistress, then a frontier wife, and now a widow...With her two children, half-blind Willy and her adopted daughter, Josefina, Tilly returns to Highfield Manor, where she'd worked as a nursemaid all those years ago.Now a rich woman, Highfield, the estate and mine are hers.  At 35, Tilly is white-haired, but as spirited and as magnetic to men as ever.  Her reputation as a witch continues to grow among the villagers, ever hostile and suspicious, but she is supported by faithful friends and warm memories.Life still has much in store for Tilly:  old loves and enmities provide fresh challenges, and the final shaping of her destiny provides the theme for an absorbing and vividly dramatic story.
  • I have only read around 100 pages of this novel so far and just like always nobody can tell a story like Catherine Cookson. I have eased into the story effortlessly. I am giving accolades to bad people in this novel and I am cursing the bad ones. Trust me this novel makes you curse a lot! This extremely large( over six hundred pages) book is to be my summer read. The novel is so good so far, I do not think it will take that much time at all.

  • Catherine Cookson is not for the faint of heart. This is not one of the gory, bloody thrillers you find in the best seller rack at the local store, but some of the finest historical literature that I have read. You will find raw 1840 England, along with coal mines with the filth and coal dust clogging your throat. You will find what the upper class call crawlers, Gentry who is diabolical, lusty and heartless, but most important, you might see that whether mankind is rich or poor, when it comes to love and hate, are we naught the same?

  • Started reading her first book on Tilly Trotter and got hooked !!!! I have just finished the third of the series and all three books were just so good. I was just sorry when I had finished the last book.I thought the 'flow on' from one book to the next was very good indeed and as always with Catherine Cookson books the descriptive passages are excellent. Each book was so different in it's own way, and that just added to the excitement of wanting to get started on to the next book. I would recommend these books to any age group. Must add that Catherine Cookson I got these books for my wife as she is an avid reader of her books and has most of them in hardback editions. She now has taken over my kindle !!!!!!

  • Catherine Cookson is one of the best writers I have ever read. Everything she writes is Great I am proud to say I own just about everything she has written, You will not be disappointed if you like to read about people struggling to survive their circumstances overcoming outrages tragedies ,I love everything she writes.
    MY Favorite Is FIFTEEN STREETS,The first book I read,some of her books are on DVD but they don't do the Book Justice but gives you a glimpse of it.

  • A fitting end to the wonderful Tilly Trotter Trilogy. So easy to read and easily enjoyable, I always find myself swept back to the time and era of these books. The series is highly addictive and Tilly is a wonderfully strong character. I love reading and watching how each one develops, but I did find myself somewhat saddened as to Tilly's childhood crush, who was once a friend now a bitter enemy.
    Be warned though, you MUST read the books in order or you will miss parts in the story and they will not make sense.

  • The characters are well developed & the setting is interesting. As usual, Cookson knows about England, its classes and languages. She writes in a way that makes the reader care about the protagonists and her imagery is delightful. Tilly is a character that one can't help but love and the way she withstands the prejudices and harsh judgments of the townspeople is inspiring. This book gives a good description of what it must have been like to work in the mines. It also makes clear that as long as people spread rumors, are prejudicial, and lack empathy our society will be sadly affected.

  • Catherine Cookson has a way of writing that really brings her characters to life.
    She is one of my favorite authors.
    This story was sad because of the fact that a rumor was started by some very disreputable people
    and even though these people were not well liked, If something is repeated often enough, people start
    to believe it. It caused a lot of suffering and misery for this woman for almost her whole life.

  • I was pleased when the widow Tilly Trotter went with her new husband (and erstwhile nursery charge) to America. However, I found that the descriptions of her life over there was watery and thin. For instance, apart from a rather "messy" description of the Indian attack while they stayed overnight at the German widow and her children, most of the other events surrounding her life in America was hazy and seemed ill-researched by the author.
