My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Katie Mulholland is a daughter of a miner who at an age of 15 years old went to work as a scullery maid in the house of the Rosier in order to support her family.
However, his life takes a turn as Bernard Rosier, heir to the Rosier family, charmed by its beauty decided to rape her.
This book chronicles the saga of Katie in a period that begins in 1860 and ends in 1944, with a vivid description of her obsession by Rosier family that intertwines the lives of her family as much as she strives to move away from this harmful influences.
Catherine Cookson is a master of storyteller and that’s why I love these books written by the “old” ladies writers.
