Set at the turn of the century, this is one of Catherine Cookson's most unusual novels, powerfully portraying a woman dangerously driven by desire and ambition.

Critic Reviews

"Humour, toughness, resolution and generosity are Cookson virtues.... In the specialised world of women's popular fiction, Cookson has created her own territory." (Helen Dunmore, The Times)

has the appeal of a Cookson novel but slow to star

liked it but not as gripping as some of her novels. it was slow to start and the characters slow to develop.

The Obsession

This was a great story and narrated excellently and with passion by
Susan Jameson. Have read Catherine Cookson books over the years, but have enjoyed the Audible version bringing the story to life.
