With her lover forced into an unwanted betrothal, Kate discovers she is pregnant and must return to face the wrath of her step-father and a bleak future. But she refuses to give up hope that one day Alexander might return to claim her and their love child. A CHILD OF JARROW (the second novel in the Jarrow Trilogy) is a poignant and compelling story with an engaging heroine who will steal your heart.
'This is the sequel to The Jarrow Lass; and A Child of Jarrow is just as compelling.' Sunderland Echo. 'The Jarrow Lass was inspired by Catherine Cookson's grandmother. This follows into the next generation, with Cookson's mother and the childhood of the great novelist herself. It is a winner.' The Bookseller. 'Brings early 20th century Jarrow vividly to life. A smashing read.' Lancashire Evening Post
