    1. A great saga told from the man's point of view. Abel is at times a complicated man whose weakness with women at times gets him in to some difficult issues, an affair with a married woman leading to her death, running away from his own wife who abuses both himself and their son whom he takes with him and resulting in him committing bigamy to give his son a settled home. His life further becomes complicated by his relationship with his sister in law which will have tragic consequences. Yet for all [...]

    2. This book is one of her really good books. This was made into a TV series.Back Cover Blurb:There are men who can at times be stirred by the power and conflict of their own emotions to the point of shedding tears. Such a man was Abel Mason.

    3. I read all of Catherine Cookson's books some years ago and enjoyed them immensley. I recently re-read all of them and find that on a second look I found them all so very predictable, and was rather disappointed. However I'm sure that it is my tastes that have changed not the calibre of her story telling.

    4. As in most of Cookson's books she writes with strong female characters overcoming some miserable circumstance or misfortune. I also love the English accents given her characters. If you like books set in old England and well developed characters, you will enjoy books by Catherine Cookson!

    5. Not one of the better Catherine Cookson's I must admit. The first section of the book was quite entertaining as Abel and his son go travelling and meet different characters along the way but then it all gets a bit monotonous and you wonder where the story's going.

    6. Catherine Cookson quality. A touching story. Abel Mason, the man who could be stirred by the power and conflict of his own emotions, to the point of shedding tears.

    7. This was a book I picked up on a sale rack at one of the castle shops when I was in England.It was a very moving story.
